Hi - I'm trying to figure out how much State sales tax has been collected during the last quarter [or year/month/period], and wanted to see if there's an easy way for Shopify to summarize this for me. Any help or direction would be appreciated. I'm hoping I have simply missed an obvious answer.
I needed the same and called for support.
Here's what you do...
Go to your orders tab.
A csv file will get emailed to you. It contains all the information you will need, to be able to sort and get the info for tax reporting. It tells you how much was paid for the goods, plus shipping, plus taxes collected etc... it breaks it down.
Hope that helps! I just filed sales tax online last night :)
We have an app in the app store that give you reporting for sales tax collected by state and by county/city/local tax jurisdiction for any time period.
