## How to calculate Florida sales tax

To calculate sales tax in Florida, you’ll first need to know the current sales tax rate in the specific area you’re interested in. Once you have that information, you can calculate the sales tax by multiplying the total purchase amount by the sales tax rate (in decimal form). Here’s the formula:

Sales Tax = Total Purchase Amount × Sales Tax Rate

For example, if the total purchase amount is \$100 and the sales tax rate is 6% (which is the statewide base rate in Florida as of my last update), the calculation would be:

Sales Tax = \$100 × 0.06 = \$6.00

So, the sales tax on a \$100 purchase at the base rate would be \$6.00. Keep in mind that certain items may be exempt from sales tax or subject to a different rate, so it’s essential to verify the specific rate for the items you’re purchasing.
