Invoice Postings are an important part of the Sales Tax Report. The invoice posting applies your accounting rules to your transactions, letting the software know when sales tax is due. The Sales Tax Report is recommended to be based on the posting date of the invoice, NOT the invoice date - but the option is still available depending on your needs. If you have not posted invoices, and run the report based on that setting, your report will be blank! For more information on posting your invoices see the Accounting chapter.

  • Sales Tax Summary Report - Provides totals for each tax location and tax rate.
  • Sales Tax Detail Report - Shows the tax information for each invoice within each tax location and tax rate.
