The tax is 5-10 cents per dollar. So a 99 cent game would be either 1.04 or 1.09, then a 1.99 game would be a 2.14 game or a 2.19 game and so on. Something like that.

Np, but it really starts to scale up the higher you go.

It depends where you live (which country, state, etc.). Some people get taxed on games but not music, some people on music but not games, some both, some neither.
