Heck, even my receipt doesn't show the price including tax - I'm no lawyer but I would actually suspect that's illegal - or bordering on it. Please, can we make this more transparent?
When rounding you always round to the nearest whole number, and 5 is closer to 4.56 then 4 is. Tax changes based on where you are from, and how much you are spending, so they can't calculate it until the end of the transaction. Cryptic is based in California, and also has to charge California sales tax.
