Sales Tax Reporting

The report provides tax amounts, tax rates, and tax totals; broken down by state, city,  county, and special jurisdictions. The information provided in our Sales Tax report should make filing taxes easier for you or your accountant.

  1. First, Setup Sales Tax by State (recommended). Or Setup Custom Tax Rate (in-state only)
  2. Then, choose whether to Charge Sales Tax on Shipping Charges
  3. Learn How to Mark a Customer as Tax Exempt
  4. Lastly, you may need to Turn off Sales Tax Calculation on DC Websites

* DistributorCentral does not file or remit sales taxes on your behalf. Check with tax authorities or a tax accountant to make sure you file and remit taxes correctly.
