I have a drop down box on my form that has all the state abbreviations, I do not know how to get the form to only charge Sales tax on FL only from the drop box.

 

Thank You for any help.

The code below worked in form the tax wasn't working on mobile version of adobe reader. Is there a better or different way to write this so it works on mobile to? I am new to this!

 

var st = this.getField("State").valueAsString;
var sub = Number(this.getField("Subtotal").valueAsString);
var dis = Number(this.getField("Discounts").valueAsString);
var ship = Number(this.getField("Shipping").valueAsString);
var total = 0;
if(st == "FL")
total = (sub+dis+ship)*(.07)
else
total = 0;
event.value = total;

JavaScript is not fully supported on mobile, so script won't work there.

If you have iOS device, you can try using 'PDF Expert' app by Readdle.
