Well, she is probably not converting the 6.75% into a decimal, which would make it .0675 X 90 = $6.075, which would be rounded up to $6.08 in tax, plus the originial $90 =$96.08.
Tell you sister to think of the tax in terms of pennies...for every dollar of product she sells, she will be collecting 6 and 3/4 pennies...
She can also probably get a sales tax chart that she can keep with her...Avon, for example, gives its consultants the chart, or she might be able to download one from the 'Net.
Or, she could just keep coming to you! <G>
