# Invalid Syntax

#1

Under the comment “#This is the math that will be calculated,”
Python is telling me that calc_county is an invalid syntax and I can’t see the problem.
Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

``````def main():
intro()
user_info()

#We being the program with an introduction for the user.

def intro():
print("Welcome to our Total Tax calculator!")
print("Let's begin by entering your total sales for the month.\n")

#Define all variables and constants.

def user_info():
STATE_SALES_TAX = .04 #The variable are constants and the value are floats.
COUNTY_SALES_TAX = .02 #The variable are constants and the value are floats.

#define variables
total_monthly_sales = 0.0 #float
calc_county = 0.0 #float
calc_state = 0.0 #float
total_sales_tax = 0.0 #float

#We ask the user to enter their monthly total sales

#This is the math that will be calculated
calc_county = total_monthly_sales * COUNTY_SALES_TAX
calc_state = total_monthly_sales * STATE_SALES_TAX
total_sales_tax = calc_county + calc_state

#Tell the user their county taxes, state taxes, and total taxes.
print("Your county taxes are: " + str(calc_county ))
print("Your state taxes are: " + str(calc_state ))
print("Your total taxes are: " + str(total_state_tax))

#Thank the user for using our program.
print("Thank you for using our tax calculator program!")
print("Goodbye!")

main()
``````

also always pay attention to the line above the error message line:

``````total_monthly_sales = float(input("Please enter your total sales for the month.\n")
``````

notice anything that looks off?

Unfortunately I do not see the problem.

look at the parentheses.
