Struct Method - Swift Enums and Structs

Hey all. I'm having this issue with the challenge on Swift Enums and Structs course. My code is compiling with no errors but I'm still getting an error when submitting the answer. Thanks in advance!

Add a method to the Expense struct that will calculate taxes based on a percentage passed to the method. In this task, add a method named calculateTaxes which accepts a parameter named 'percentage' of type Double and does not return anything. (In the next task we will add the calculations to the method).

Add a Double as a return type to the calculateTaxes method and within the method return the following expression: (self.amount * (percentage/100)).

struct.swift
```struct Expense {
var description: String
var amount: Double = 0.0
var percentage: Double

init (description: String, percentage: Double) {
self.description = description
self.percentage = percentage
}

func calculateTaxes(percentage: Double) -> Double {
return (self.amount * (percentage/100))

}
}
```

Hi Tony,

You have a minor error in your code which is you've specified a new `description` property in the `struct` which isn't required as `description` is a parameter so it's already assigned as a contant within the method.

The final code for task 2 you should have is as follows.

```struct Expense {
var description: String
var amount: Double = 0.0

init (description: String) {
self.description = description
}

func calculateTaxes(percentage: Double) -> Double {
return (self.amount * (percentage/100))
}
}
```

Happy coding!

Thank you!
