I need the total PayPal fees I paid for tax year 2019. PayPal support is directing me to the Financial Summary report, which is no longer available. If I click Activity > Statements > Custom, there is no "Financial summaries" option. If I select any transaction type and create a report in CSV format, there is no column for PayPal fees in the resulting report. If I click Standard instead of Custom and download monthly account statements for the year 2019, I see a column for PayPal fees, but the reports can only be downloaded in PDF format, not CSV. If I click "Tax docs" instead of Custom, it takes me to the old PayPal interface, but it says I have no 2019 tax documents. If I click History > Download History or Statements or pretty much anything else on that page, it redirects me to the new interface where the option is no longer available.
I was looking for a way to do this as well and just figured it out.
If you go to Activity Download under Reports and choose Completed Payments in the drop-down, it will show a column for the Fees in the .csv. You can also customize some of the other fields that you want with the link directly below the drop-down.

It seems that PayPal has changed the download path on its website and this issue has come back. I still dont see fees as an included column when I download my custom statements in CSV format.
Is anyone else having this issue?
Go to Activity ---> All Reports ---> Financial Summaries --> Financial Summary --> Set to the year you want. Click "Create Report." It will generate a big list that will include fees.
**UPDATE SOLUTION 2021**
-> ACTIVITY -> ALL REPORTS -> FINANCIAL SUMMARIES -> SELECT DATE -> PRESS CREATE REPORT
Now you can see immediatly what you want to know, it doesn't give you an .excl file.
Good luck guys!
