## Tax Programming for Automatic Tax Calculation Function

Before you can proceed with ringing sales transactions, you must first program the tax that is levied in
accordance with the laws of your state. The cash register comes with the ability to program four different tax
rates. In most states, you will only need to program Tax 1. However if you live in an area that has a separate
local tax (such as a Parish tax) or a hospitality tax, the register can be programmed to calculate these separate
taxes.
When you program the tax status for a department, tax will automatically be added to sales of items assigned to
the department according to the programmed tax status for the department. You can also enter tax manually.
There are two tax programming methods. The tax rate method uses a straight percentage rate per dollar. The
tax table method requires tax break information from your state or local tax offices. Use the method which is
acceptable in your state. You can obtain necessary data for tax programming from your local tax office.
Tax programming using a tax rate
