    Do you provide the option to calculate formulas within your forms?

    Say someone wants to purchase 10 items, can you calculate 'behind the scenes' the sales tax that would be applied to that order? 

    Thanks for your reply.

    Hi there,

    I'm sorry but Jotform forms do not handle calculations.  We recommend that you get your prefered payment system to handle tax issues.   You don't seem to have any payment forms setup so I'm making the assumption that you would use Paypal given that it's the easiest, but please advise if you want to use another.  Have a look at this link on how to add sales tax within Paypal

    Your users will see the updated price once they get to the paypal page.

    Thanks,

    Daniel
