sales tax & more

On the business side of things, it would be nice to have GNUCash be able to
compute the sales tax for us as well.  Why?  When I sell something, I have
to take out sales tax for my city, local transit authority, county , and
state, of which I have to be file separately (one for the city, one for the
rest) at the end of each quarter.  I also need to be able to compute income
taxes off the gross numbers as well.  It would be much easier if there was a
way in GNUCash to have it calculate those values for my quarterly filings
for me and stuff the money into sub accounts so I don't accidentally spend
my tax dollars before EOQ.

BTW - When I was at my local office supply store, I saw that QuickBooks has
a cash register function now.  Is anyone planning anything similar for
GNUCash at this point?

Hi all,

Is it possible in Gnucash to extract a sales tax amount from each
I now you could create a split but i'm after a more automated way to take
a standard 12.5% off each amount as its entered.
