    Has anyone really looked into how they calculate the taxes and fees for car rentals? Look at the following rental and then do the math for given tax and surg %.

    Subtotal $58.54
    Additional Items
    Collision Damage Waiver Full ($24.99/Day) $74.97
    Subtotal $74.97


    Consolidated Facility Chg 3.75/day $11.25
    Concession Recovery Fee 10 % $14.06
    Clark County Tax 2 % $ 2.67
    Vehicle License Fee 2.35/day $7.05
    Sales Tax (8.10%) $4.74
    Nv Gov Surchg (10.0%) $15.88
    Subtotal $55.65

    I have a few different reservations and when i do the math for example 10% nothing matches up. 10% of 133.51 is $13.35. They show two different amounts for 10%.

    Just wondering if anyone looked into this.

    I'm guessing these are the values used for each...

    The Concession recovery percentage is based on 10% of:
    Your sub-total of $133.51 + the Vehicle lic fee of $7.05 = $140.56
    10% = $14.056 (rounding up to $14.06)

    The Nv Gov Surcharge would be 10% of the following:
    Your subtotal (133.51) + Consolidated Facility (11.25) + Concession recovery fee (14.06) = $158.82. 10% = $15.88
