Sales Tax Report - Charts and Graphs gone!

I used to use  Activity > Charts and Graphs to quickly view my sales tax collected in the past month. It took 10 seconds. I have two business accounts and Graphs and Charts was deactivated from one of them - confirmed by PayPal. I called them to ask where I can find my sales tax info for that one account now and they suggested the CSV Activity Download report. Turns out sales tax isn't itemized there.

 

Where can I find this now?

It turns out that Sales Tax IS itemized in the Activity Download report:

 

  1. Click on Activity
  2. Click Download in upper-right corner
  3. Specify the date range and file format
  4. Refresh and download report
  5. Sales Tax is column T in my spreadsheet

 

Mine took just seconds to create but I don't have hundreds of transactions.

 

I miss Charts and Graphs but this works.

I would also like to know how to access "sales tax collected" if the charts and graphs form is taken away

I had the same issue and called customer service was told to use the custom reports so generated a report and it tells me it will take a few hours to complete, still waiting to see if that corrects it.  Wish they would just bring the charts and graphics tab back was a 10 sec operation to get the sales tax each month.

This is very complicated and slow for process for businesses.  Same as it use to be 7 years ago and now is the same. PayPal is going backwards. I'M VERY DISAPPOINTED.

Why this was deactivated?

 

Now is more complicated for all sellers to find this info Smiley Frustrated

The rep told me it was deactivated before he started there and it took a long time to vaporize across the system. It disappeared on one of my accounts before the other.

Absolutely ridiculous where has Charts and Graphs gone, couple of clicks and I knew how much I had received in a year, how much fees were. Now have to download the whole year or calculate an end amount through lots and lots of transactions. A simply to do thing made completely difficult now.

Re: Sales Tax Report - Charts and Graphs gone!

Inconceivable to me as a 10 yr veteran of paypal sales why on God's green earth Pp thought it would be a good idea to eliminate the simple convenient Charts and Graph for sales and sales tax information critical to quarterly sale tax filing. I just spent 45 minutes pulling this information from a Excel file and adding up several columns. Paypal management has stuck out on this idea - This is their biggest error since the awful packing slip debacle last year. Remember that one !? LMAO
