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 Smartphone Case on your store in Logan, Utah, having a net cost of $15. The amount of Sales Tax that you have to pay on the Smartphone Case would be:


Manual Method:

Net Price (amount before Tax) of a Smartphone Case: $15

Total Sales Tax rate: 0.300% (Fort Worth) + 1.850% (Cache County) + 4.850% (Utah State) = 7.00%


Total Sales Tax amount = $15 x 7.00% = $1.05

Gross Price (Amount after Tax) = 15 + 1.05 = $15.75


So, the Sales Tax amount charged on the Smartphone Case would be $1.05, raising the gross cost to $15.75.


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 $15 as the Net Price of a Smartphone Case as Amount Before Tax
  2. Input or select 00% 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 you have actually paid on a product in Utah.

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


Example:

The gross cost (amount after tax) of a Smartphone Charger is $35, which you sell on your store in Taylorsville, Utah. Now, 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 Smartphone Charger, you can follow the steps below:

Gross Price (Amount after Tax) of Smartphone Charger: $35

Total Sales Tax rate: 0.00% (Taylorsville) + 2.40% (Salt Lake County) + 4.850% (Utah State) = 7.250%


Manual Method:

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

35 = [Net Price x ((7.25/100) + 1)]

35 = Net Price x 1.07

$32.7 = Net Price


So, the original Price (net price) of the Smartphone Charger would be $32.7.


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 $35 Gross Price of Smartphone Charger as Amount after Tax
  2. Input or select 7.25% of combined Sales Tax Rate on the Tax Rate

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