Reverse Taxer

I haggle a lot. Sometimes to make the sale I tell the customer that I will take care of the sales tax. I still need to report the sales tax, so how do I figure that out?

That is the purpose for this little javascript program. It is kind of tricky because the results have to be computed to match my municipalities sales tax bracket tax table (see Florida Dept Of Revenue).

It was not easy to figure out. Tax Tables shift the "Distribution of Natural Numbers" so that tax cheaters can be detected (See Wikipedia - Benford's Law ).

Enter the Total Sale Amount of your sale. Press "calculate". Your results will display. A pop-up alert will let you know if you have hit a weird spot in the tax table. Try 13 and 12.94 as examples.
