Question

Abbott Florists sells flowers on a retail basis. Most of the sales are for cash; however, a few steady customers have credit accounts. Abbott’s sales staff fills out a sales slip for each sale. There is a state retail tax of 5 percent, which is collected by the retailer and submitted to the state. The balances of the accounts as of March 1 have been recorded in the general ledger in your Working Papers or in CengageNow. Abbott Florists’ charge sales for March are as follows:
Mar. 4 Sold floral arrangement on account to R. Duarte, sales slip no. 236, $ 45, plus sales tax of $ 2.25, total $ 47.25.
