Calculates American sales taxes, state and district. Java Applet that can also be run as an application. Requires Java version 1.5 or later. Java source code and sample HTML included. This version computes by adding sales tax to a base price. It currently does not work in reverse given the final price working backwards to get the taxe and base price. In other words it will not tell you the sticker price to make something come out even after taxes are added. However, it has a spinner that lets you approximate that function. Just select the buyer's state and district, enter the amount of the sale and hit calc. You can adjust the sale amount with a spinner. If you are a business, you don't have to collect sales taxes from people in other states unless you have a business presence in that state. The distributed version is absolutely identical to the registered version, and includes Java source and sample HTML. You may use the code freely in your own programs. You don't need to register multiple copies.
