When you give a customer a receipt, do you add a seperate line for sales tax, or just keep track on your own and give them a round number? I've seen small businesses do it both ways, just wondering what people here prefer. Is there a benefit to doing it one way over the other?

i made a separate line and added it all up--it's easier to account for and shows the breakdown for the customer--all your paperwork would be good to go visually--


my state, tennessee, loves taxes--we are almost 10 per freaking cent tax oh my god --- so yes i show all the ciphering-- because the client needs to know how much the grabby hands in the government are getting out of the deal -- 


not that i'm bitter
