Our set tax rate is 6.5% for all our items. However, when we pull the "sales by item report" and calculate the tax rate it fluctuates.
Example: 2 items bought = $1.90 (Gross Sales) Tax = $0.12, Total = $2.02
When we calculate the tax rate for the sale it reflects a lower tax rate.
Example: $0.12 (Taxes on sale) / $1.90 (Gross Sales) = 6.316%
Why are we not ending up with a 6.5%?
