My total tax is off by a cent or more

If you take your subtotal for an estimate and multiply it by your tax percentage, you might find there is a discrepancy between that number and the total tax in your proposal.  

This is because LMN calculates tax on individual items and rounds to the nearest penny.  These $ amounts are added together to calculate your total tax.

Multiplying your subtotal by your tax % will often give you a number that differs slightly from the alternative method

 

However, if you were just to take the subtotal and calc 13%, it’s (often) off by a penny or a few.  That’s because the item-driven method has more opportunities to round up.  So, legally, we’re correct – but since most landscapers don’t show item-based invoices (just a total), we’re also often “wrong” if you calc 13% of the total.
