Say I have 5 items in my cart, two of them have a 13% tax 3 of them have 5% tax.  I apply a card discount of \$10   Will the discount then by divided equally among the 5 items that get discount and then calculate tax for each of the items?  I think I'm seeing something weird.

Here is an example: item #1 is 13% and the rest 5%

item #1

\$2.88×1\$2.88

item #2

\$8.95×1\$8.95

item#3

\$3.95×1\$3.95

item #4

\$3.95×1\$3.95

item #5

\$3.95×1\$3.95

Subtotal\$21.31

Discount

Discount

-\$2.37

HST 13%

\$0.34

HST 5%

\$0.94

Total\$22.59

So \$2.37 is the discount. I'm not sure how the taxes are caculated can anyone tell me?

I think i got it.

Price / Sum of Prices x Discount will give the the individual discount for each item.

so 2.88 ./ 23.68 x 2.37 = 0.29 -> 2.88 - 0.29 x 13% = 0.34
