The Sales Tax Details report provides state, county, and city tax details by invoice line item and includes a tax summary with taxable and non-taxable sales totals. The report opens as an Excel worksheet and can be created for a period of up to 31 days.

Figure 1 shows an example of the line items details in the Sales Tax Details report.

The following information will help you understand the tax summary values:

  • The Totals values match the Comparative Revenue report revenue and tax totals.
  • The Total Taxable Sales and Non-Taxable Sales values break down the taxable and non-taxable sale totals for each tax type and are the sum of individual line items.
  • Each value in the last row is the sum of all taxes collected (State Tax, County Tax, and City Tax) and the column’s Total Taxable Sales and Non-Taxable Sales values.

The Sales Tax Details report complements the Comparative Revenue report, which calculates taxable and non-taxable values by line-item instead of by invoice.

In the Sales Tax Details report, for each tax type (state, city, etc.), the taxable sales total is the sum of the line-items that were taxed, and the non-taxable sales total is the sum of the line-items that were not taxed.
