The Taxes, Non-taxable Sales, and Discounts Report is a summary of all taxes, non-taxable sales, and discounts on invoices that were closed during the selected reporting period. Keep in mind that the date range selected when generating this report is the date range that invoices were closed, which may be a different date then when the patient was checked out of Instinct.
For this report, any line items on the invoice that were voided will not be included. It is important to note that taxable sales are the sum of each line item after any discounts have been applied and for the discounted sales, it is the sum of each line item after discounts are applied and excludes taxes.
