    Taxes are different wherever you live. Sometimes there are several different kinds of taxes applied wherever you live. I live in Canada, here they charge 5% federal taxes and a provincial tax that's different in every province. Where I live there are no provincial taxes so I only pay 5% which is extremely low so it really depends where you live. You can do the math like this

    $15 (price of good) x 1.05 (5% tax) = $15.75

    It depends on where you live. look it up for your city and state.
