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

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

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

}

Hi there!

It looks like a simple mis-placed bracket. You need to close your init method with } before you write your calculateTaxes Method. Currently, your calculateTaxes method is placed within your init method.

The following adjustment should work for you.

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

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

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

I find that taking the time to properly indent code lines helps expose any mis-placed brackets. I hope this helps, and good luck!
