Your question is vague, but we can assume you're talking about adding sales tax to an item that is sold at retail. If the sales tax is 5 percent, multiply the item's tag price by 1.05, which gives you the total price. For example, if a sweater is 20 bucks, multiply that by 1.05, which gives you 21 dollars. Some people calculate the tax and then add it to the price. Five percent of 20 bucks is one dollar, so 20 plus one is 21.

Do you get taxed for change?

No, so if you try to buy something, the item will always have tax. For example: I want an item that cost $5.76. And I give the clerk $16.96. So I told you that an item will always have tax right, so lets say the tax was $0.57. So we add the price of the item with the tax and we get $6.33. Now lets subtract $16.96 minus $6.33 and we get $10.63. So $10.63 is our change.

If you sold an item for 20.00 and included sales tax and your sales tax rate is 7.3 what was the item price before sales tax?

The easiest way to understand the answer is to turn it around. If you wanted to calculate the item price plus tax, you would multiply the item price by 1.073. So, to back up to the item price from the item price plus tax, divide the item price plus tax by 1.073. $20.00 / 1.073 = item price before sales tax.
