Sales Tax Splitting

I would love to see a feature (perhaps available only when you select the envelope splitting option) that allows you to enter a tax value in its own field. It would then be split automatically into each assigned envelope proportionally. For example, assume I have a receipt for $53.25 but $3.25 of that was tax. I create a transaction that splits it into 3 envelopes. Envelope 1 is assigned $10, envelope 2 is assigned $25, and envelope 3 is assigned $15. I would then enter $3.25 into the tax field. GoodBudget would then automatically split that $3.25 by putting 1/5 of it into envelope 1, 1/2 into envelope 2, and 3/10 of it into envelope 3. 

I can always do this myself, but it takes longer than I would like to enter my transactions when I do.

Hi Colton - Thanks for the suggestion! I can see how it would be helpful and time saving to have Goodbudget automatically split sales tax among your Envelopes. I've added your suggestion to our request features tracker for future consideration. Thanks, again.
