How to calculate sales tax in Missouri

To calculate sales tax in Missouri, follow these steps:

1. Determine the sales tax rate applicable to your location. In Missouri, the sales tax rate can vary depending on the city and county. You can find the current rates on the Missouri Department of Revenue website or by contacting your local tax authority.

2. Once you have the sales tax rate, convert it to a decimal. For example, if the sales tax rate is 7.25%, you would convert it to 0.0725.

3. Multiply the purchase amount by the sales tax rate expressed as a decimal. For instance, if you’re buying an item for \$100 and the sales tax rate is 7.25%, you would calculate: \$100 * 0.0725 = \$7.25.

4. Add the calculated sales tax to the purchase amount to find the total cost. Using the previous example, the total cost would be \$100 + \$7.25 = \$107.25.
