 # How to calculate tax

Hey, I’ve seen many people who don’t know how to / calculate tax wrongly.
(Btw go to the bottom if you want a TL;DR)

Say you want to give someone 100s. Simply give them 130s because 30s is 70% of 100s, right?
Well, wrong.
It’s a tad little more complicated then that.
If you want to give someone 100s, that 100s, would be the 70% of the amount left after tax.
In order to find how much you’d need to give, follow these steps

70%-> 100s (how much your friend is receiving)
1%-> 100s/70 (1% of total you will give)
100%-> 100s/70 x100
~143s (how much you will give on the trade)

TL;DR: (amount b4 tax divided by 70 then multiplied by 100)
(Slightly less precise would be just to multiply the requested amount before tax by 1.43)
Sry if it’s a bit confusing.
Hopefully you won’t need to use this guide if my other post requesting a feature is added to the game.

Or just multiply the amount you need to pay by 1.43 and you’ll get the same answer.

Yeah that works too

Ok if I add that as the TL;dr?

I mean your strategy works too, just takes an extra step, but my strategy is far less precise.

If you really wanted an exact number, you’d do “n x (100/70)” where n = the amount requested. The majority of time you’ll end up with a much more exact number with multiple decimals, so if you really want to pay the exact amount that’s how you’d do it.
