Run a taxes report

A taxes report shows you the amount of taxes paid on transactions through GoDaddy Payments during the reporting period. You can generate a taxes report through the Dashboard in your web browser or on your GoDaddy smart terminal.

Taxes reports include a summary of each type of tax, a daily total for all taxes, and a breakdown of each order or transaction in which a tax was applied, including the transaction ID, tax type and order status.

Note: Currently, this reporting is only available to smart terminal owners.
  1. Go to the Dashboard where you manage your GoDaddy Payments account (use your GoDaddy username and password).
  2. Select Reports.
  3. If prompted, select Taxes Report under Payments.
  4. In the Type dropdown menu, select Taxes report.
  5. In the To and From fields, specify the date range for the report.
  6. Select Generate to pull your report. (This can take a few minutes.)
  7. You'll receive an email notification when the report is ready. Select the link in the email to return to Reports. The report will appear below your filter selections.

  7. Tap Generate to pull your report.
  8. When the report is ready, it will appear on your smart terminal screen. Tap View to open and review it.
    Note: Reports created on the smart terminal will also display in your web browser Dashboard under Reports. Access them in your web browser to download a PDF or Excel version of the report.

The taxes report includes an overall summary of the type and amount of applied taxes, followed by an order breakdown. The breakdown includes the transaction and order ID, name of the applied tax, total order amount, tax amount and order status for each order.

When the report is exported to Excel, each section displays as a tab in the Excel sheet.

Check out the example report below to get an idea of the type of info that's included.

Example taxes report
  1. Location: The POS devices and locations included in the report.
  2. Timeframe: The report timeframe and the date the report was generated.
  3. Summary: The net total amount of tax and transaction amounts for this timeframe, broken down by the tax types used.
  4. Taxes by Day: Breakdown of the total daily tax and transaction amounts collected.
  5. Tax Details: Breakdown of each individual transaction. This section includes the tax type and amount applied to each order, the order total including price adjustments, and the order status (Paid or Pending).
    • Each tax type is broken out into its own line item in this section. Tax types that were not applied to an order will still appear in this section, with $0.00 in the Tax column.
