Sales Tax and Vat reporting is done using the same data elements that are used when processing transactions. The standard tax report (The Taxtype/Taxcode report) outputs sales and sales tax information for a period of time by sorting the invoice detail information in Taxtype and then Taxcode sequence. This format provides a report that can be used to fill out most tax returns easily. The report will output and total first by Taxtype (for example retail or resale) and within each Taxtype it will then output and subtotal by Taxcode (which is normally set up to match each tax district or authority on a state return). This provides retail sales broken down by tax authority or region. Additional filters also allow the report to be restricted to shipments into a certain state, country, etc.
