Step 3 – Calculate Sales Tax:

After the determination of the Sales Tax rate according to the location and type of purchases, it is easy to calculate the sales tax amount charged on the product and gross price (amount after tax) of a product.


Example # 1:

For instance, you are selling a mattress on your online store, having a net price tag of $245. The buyer wants it delivered in Bella Vista, Arkansas. The amount that a buyer has to pay (including sales tax) on a check out would be:


Manual Method:

Net Price (amount before Tax) of a Mattress: $245

Total Sales Tax rate: 1% (Bella Vista) + 1% (Benton County) + 6.5% (Arkansas State) = 8.5%


Total Sales Tax amount = $245 x 8.5% = $20.8

Gross Price (Amount after Tax) = 245 + 20.8 = $265.8


It means the amount the buyer has to pay for a Mattress on a cash counter would be $265.8.


Using our Sales Tax Calculator:

All of the steps mentioned above can be skipped to get an instant result using our Sales Tax Calculator. All you need is:

  1. Input the $265.8 Net Price of a Mattress as Amount Before Tax
  2. Input or select 5% of the combined Sales Tax rate on the Tax Rate menu.

Our calculator will automatically calculate the result, and represents it in 3 different forms, as shown in the image below:

Reverse Sales Tax Calculation

In the example above, we have explained to you to calculate the Sales Tax amount payable in a product, and the Gross Price of the Product.

But there are also instances when you are required to deduce how much sales tax buyer has actually paid on a product or you may want to check the accuracy of the sales tax indicated on your item's receipt.

This is where the Reverse Sales Tax Calculation Kicks in. And luckily, our Arkansas Sales Tax Calculator can perform this calculation like a Pro.


Example:

Your buyer has paid $120 for a headphone at your store in Pine Bluff, Arkansas. Now the buyer is inquiring how much the headphones actually cost before the sales tax was added. So you need to follow the steps below to determine the amount before tax (net price) of a headphone:

Gross Price (Amount after Tax) of headphones: $120

Total Sales Tax rate: 2.250% (Pine Bluff) + 1.250% (Jefferson County) + 6.5% (Arkansas State) = 10%


Manual Method:

Gross Price with sales tax = [Net Price × (tax rate in decimal form + 1)]

120 = [Net Price x ((10/100) + 1)]

120 = Net Price x 1.1

$109.1 = Net Price


So the original Price (net price) of the headphones was $109.1.


Using our Sales Tax Calculator:

You can also use our Sales Tax Calculator for Reverse Sales Tax calculation to skip the above mentioned manual method. All you need is:

  1. Input the $120 Gross Price of headphones as Amount after Tax
  2. Input or select 10% of combined Sales Tax Rate on the Tax Rate

Our calculator will automatically calculate the result and represents it in 3 different forms.
