    Default I included the main method, but it keeps flashing that I don't have one included?

    package javaapplication11;


    if (taxRate > 0)
    public static void main (String [] args);

    {
    double taxAmount;
    taxAmount = subTotal * taxRate;
    total = subtotal + total;

    }

    Try to understand the main function is static and cannot be called but in main functions you can call functions and constructors.
    So,
    Try storing the code of main function in functions or constructors and then call it.

    ok... I'll answer the obvious... although I'm not sure what you are trying to accomplish your main method is wrong. Just remove the ';'
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
       double taxAmount;
       taxAmount = subTotal * taxRate;
       total = subtotal + total;
    }
    You might want to revisit how mains are used to invoke an action, i.e. set your program in motion... it doesn't look like you quite have a handle on it just yet.

    }
    A main method ends with a curly brace, semicolons are used to set the end of a line .
