Damn, I keep seeing all this high taxes (8-13%) in other states. I guess I never realized how low Michigan's taxes were compared to others.

Having a tax less that 1.00 would imply that the state would OWE you money when you bought something. It's just a 6% sales tax or .06

You add 1 to it in the equation to tack the sales tax onto the existing number. Pretty basic math.

lol, I just made an ass of myself. I was using the numbers I use to calculate since for whatever reason it gets a weird number when I try to do xx.xx * 8.75% so I always use 0.875 which is the decimal equivalent. So I should correct myself and say you lucky bastard.

Also it would have to be tax less than 0 not 1 because there are still the decimal places.

Yes,but the way I was calculating it, my statement is still correct. If you had a number less than 1.00 but greater than 0 and multiplied it by the total amount owed, the result would be less than the original number, hence why the state would OWE you money.

Example: 100 dollar purchase with 5% sales tax.

100.00
x 0.05 (sales tax)
______________
5.00
You then add that to the original amount to get your total after taxes.

Total= 105.00

The way I calculated it takes that last addition step out and factors it straight into the original equation.

100.00
x 1.05 (sales tax decimal plus 1)
______________
105.00

no additional steps
In my equation, if there was a number less than 1, it would mean that there is a negative tax
