Add "Total Sales" (pre-tax) to Sales Tax Report
The current sales tax report does not include a column for Total Sales (pre-tax).
Ironically, the report does include totals that most studios would not ever use to file sales taxes...like shipping.
On the other hand, every sales tax filing I've ever done always wants to know "Total Pre-Tax Sales". This is the total of Taxable and Non-Taxable sales before sales tax.
As it stands now, each time I print a sales tax report I must manually add the taxable and non-taxable sales to get this number.If you use the "Total" field in the Stratus report you are getting a number that already includes sales tax and shipping. In my experience, that is not the number the taxing agency wants.
If you would like an example of the form my state uses, I can send it to you.
