Nell thinks you're an idiot

Dear Oklahoma State Sales Tax People:

I do appreciate that you don't require vendors who are at a show in OK once a year to apply for a tax permit, and just allow them to calculate their taxes, give it to the promoter, and leave it at that.

However, I must take issue with your math skills, Oklahoma State Sales Tax People. When the sales tax rate is 8.517%, it is calculated by multiplying your sales total by .08517, not by multiplying your sales total by 8.517, as your form so helpfully and clearly states. I do not, in fact, owe several thousand dollars on my meager sales, but considerably less.

No love,
