Tax Collected by Transaction


In this article, you will learn about Sellercloud’s Tax Collected by Transaction report. This report shows the tax collected on debits (sales and payments) and the tax refunded on credits (refunds) for order transactions within your chosen filing period or date range. It also includes information about the location, channel, and customer details.

This only includes transactions from orders that shipped within the US, have a US country code, and whose code strictly matches one of these valid code formats. Orders with valid country codes, but invalid zip codes, appear as follows:

  • State and County reports – as “N/A”
  • Transaction report – as a viable order (but City/County/State will be “N/A”)

You can see the following:

  • Transaction Information: Transaction Type, Order Number, Trans Date, Order Date, and Pending Settlement.
  • Sales and Revenue: Grand Total, Taxable Sales, Non-Taxable Sales, Tax Rate, Tax Collected, Paid by Channel, Tax Due, Shipping, Subtotal, Discount.
  • Location Information: State, City, County, Province, Address 1, Address 2, and Zip.
  • Channel and Customer Information: Channel, Channel Order Number, Company, and Ship From Warehouse.
You can run this report automatically on a regular basis with Scheduled Tasks.
