How to calculate sales tax in Excel?

Author: Kelly Last Modified: 2020-04-26

As we know, we always pay the sales tax when shopping except purchasing duty-free goods. But do you know how many sales tax you have paid? There are two conditions to calculate the sales tax in Excel.


Calculate sales tax if you get price exclusive of tax

Sometimes, you may get the price exclusive of tax. In this condition, you can easily calculate the sales tax by multiplying the price and tax rate.

Select the cell you will place the calculated result, enter the formula =B1*B2 (B1 is the price exclusive of tax, and B2 is the tax rate), and press the Enter key.

And now you can get the sales tax easily. See screenshot:


Calculate sales tax if you get tax-inclusive price

In some regions, the tax is included in the price. In the condition, you can figure out the sales tax as follows:

Select the cell you will place the sales tax at, enter the formula =E4-E4/(1+E2) (E4 is the tax-inclusive price, and E2 is the tax rate) into it, and press the Enter key.

And now you can get the sales tax easily. See screenshot:
