That should be "round to the nearest cent."

"Round-up" (generally without the hyphen) means "to change to the next
highest cut-oiff level.  Here it would mean "to change to the next highest
cent" and would imply that a 6% sales tax on a sale of one cent would result
in a one-cent sales tax being levied.
