# Tax Formula

## Tax Formula

(OP)
Massachusetts wants us to round SUTA and training taxes that employers pay. We have a formula that ends with ANSWER=-TAXABLE_GROSS*PERCENT% to figure out both. How can I say that the answer is the integer value of (-TAXABLE_GROSS*PERCENT%) if the fractional value is < .5; and the answer is the integer value + 1 if the value of (-TAXABLE_GROSS*PERCENT%) is more than > .5??

### RE: Tax Formula

(OP)
Figured it out.  Had to change the line from ANSWER=-TAXABLE_GROSS*PERCENT% to "Z =-TAXABLE_GROSS*PERCENT%"
"ANSWER = INT(Z - 0.5)" Works fine now.
