Tax Problem

Recommended Posts

hey guys,

 

having a minor tax problem, my tax rate is 10%

 

if i have an item worth gross $11, through the checkout page, its displaying tax as $1, not $1.10 (its calculating tax off the NET not the GROSS price)

 

but the sub total, total and all other relevent calulations are correct, its just displaying my tax rate off the net instead of gross and i cannot find what is causing the problem =\

 

any help would be greatly appreciate

 

p.s i have done thorough searches through this forum but as yet havent found a similar problem

 

thanks

Chek YOur admin localization setting.

There is a round off after decimal.

 

Should be that else some of coe modification done did not follow oscommerce standards.

Also can You elaborate what YOu mean by Gross and Net.

As these prices are generally a function of tax plus net price.

Hi Satish,

 

i have rounding turned off, and i know its not a rounding problem because i know exactly how it is calculated it, just not how to fix it.

Ill give you an example, my tax rate is 10%

 

If i add an item in for gross amount $44.99. If i added this item to cart, it should be telling me that the tax portion of this is $4.49 (or $4.50 if rounding is on)

But what it is giving me instead of $4.49, is $4.09, which is ten percent of the Net value not gross, as $40.90 is the net amount of $44.99.

 

The checkout still has the correct total and all other caluclation are correct, its just displaying the tax portion based off the items net amount not gross.

 

thanks for the help

40,90(NET) + 10% (TAX) = 44,99(GROSS)

 

That's how usually tax is calculated.

Rather You should always enter net rate and tax.

Gross is calculated from net plus tax.

 

 

The reason being tax might vary for different states.
