    How do you charge tax on your invoices? the ones taht I use doesn't have it, it's a very simple layout.
    Do you add that at the end of the bill or you already included that in the price?
    Any help will be appreciated.

    I would add the tax on a line where the materials are listed.That way you can still give a description of the item.And then go to the store and buy blank invoices that have the tax on the bottom. payup

    I don't get the problem here. If you pay $300 for the supplies including the tax why are you seperating the tax for the customer? Just charge them the $300 for the supplies. The only reason that you would have to seperate the tax would be if you were a retailer. You are a service provider. You purchase the supplies from the retailer. Then you provide the service of installing those supplies.
