Taxes Report

The taxes report provides detailed information about the amounts collected from guests for various types of taxes, helping you answer questions such as, "How much did I collect last month for each type of tax?"

This report includes the following rows for the timeframe and locations you select:

  • Each tax type configured in the Toast administration back-end on the Payments > Tax Rates page that was applied to a check.

  • Non Taxable, which reports data for items for which no taxes were charged or collected from guests. The non-taxed items report provides detail about items that were not taxed.

For more information about configuring tax rates, see Taxes overview.

The taxes report includes only data relating to taxes.
