I treat sales tax as does any other store. I add it onto the price just like Walmart does.

To make figuring prices easy, I price everything in $5 increments. (25,45,50, etc.)
Then I have a chart made up that shows the total including sales tax for for every $5.00 up to $250.00
Simple spread sheet. Also have it set up so that when I am in different tax jurisdictions, I just change the tax amount and it figures it out.

Then when I calculate sales for each show, I don’t include the sales tax. That is separate entry.
Concerning reporting of sales tax, for each show I do in a different area, they have their own form for each of the shows.
