Use this report to show and print information about ledger transactions for which sales tax is calculated.

For each main account, the ledger transactions with calculated sales tax amounts are listed chronologically.

For each transaction, the voucher number, transaction text, transaction amount (debit or credit), sales tax code, and sales tax amount, including sales tax direction, are listed.

Transaction amounts and sales tax amounts are summed for each main account.
