Massachusetts 6.25% sales tax chart
My husband is amazing for a number of reasons, but one particular plus of his that helps me with my business is his ability with spreadsheets. He works with them constantly at his job, so he is really talented with them. As far as I'm concerned, they are a tool to make columns and rows. Yup, I'm that useless. He has helped me on more than one occasion with my business by building me an awesome functioning spreadsheet. One simple-to-him/mind-blowing-to-me spreadsheet he made for me was a list of the taxable amount by dollar for the standard Massachusetts sales tax, currently 6.25%. It's been super handy to have at shows, not needing to bust out the calculator to figure fractions of percentages. All of my work is priced by the dollar, so it works well for me as there are no change amounts to figure in, only whole dollars.
I like to share things that have been helpful for me, so here it is, the 6.25% sales tax chart on Google Docs, ready for you to print. I took a highlighter to every other row after I printed, making it even easier to read when things are chaotic at a show. I hope you find it as helpful as I have, I'm glad I can share some of my husband's awesomeness with you!
