Is Tax Included

Q: My husband says restaurant tips are based on the bill’s total before tax, but I think you tip with the tax added in.  Who’s right?

A: Your husband wins this one.  Restaurant tips are based on the bill before the tax is added.  So if the total bill comes to $55, and the tax is $3, you calculate your tip using a $52 as your base.
