Step 4 – Calculate Sales Tax:

After determining 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 sell a Laptop Charger on your store in Winnemucca, Nevada, having a net cost of $30. The amount of Sales Tax that you have to pay on the Laptop Charger would be:


Manual Method:

Net Price (amount before Tax) of a Laptop Charger: $30

Total Sales Tax rate: 2.00% (Winnemucca) + 0.00% (Humboldt County) + 6.850% (Nevada State) = 6.850%



Total Sales Tax amount = $30 x 6.850% = $2.1

Gross Price (Amount after Tax) = 30 + 2.1 = $32.1


The sales tax amount charged on the Laptop Charger would be $2.1, raising its gross cost to $32.1.


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:

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 times when you are required to deduce how much Sales tax you have actually paid on a product in Nevada.

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


Example:

The gross cost (amount after tax) of a Laptop Bag is $75, which you sell on your store in Norfolk, Nevada. If you want to deduce the amount of sales tax you have actually paid on it and the net cost (amount before tax) of a Laptop Bag, you can follow the following steps:

Gross Price (Amount after Tax) of Laptop Bag: $75

Total Sales Tax rate: 1.50% (Amargosa Valley) + 0.750% (Nye County) + 6.850% (Nevada State) = 7.60%


Manual Method:

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

75 = [Net Price x ((7.6/100) + 1)]

75 = Net Price x 1.08

$69.4 = Net Price


So the original Price (net price) of the Laptop Bag would be $69.4.


Using our Sales Tax Calculator:

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

  1. Input the $75 Gross Price of Laptop Bag as Amount after Tax
  2. Input or select 7.60% of combined Sales Tax Rate on the Tax Rate
