  1. calculator is not quite right … for example a $2,500 project is $300 in fees. its 20% of the first $500 then 10% of the next amount after that.

    $300 (.2 * 500 = $100 + .1 * 2000 = 200)

    1. Thanks James, noted, that is what I had asked to be programmed in but I obviously didn’t check it closely enough, I’ll get it updated.
