To view the full details of your tax return (including any credits, vendor discounts, etc.), generate a Liability worksheet return detail report:

  • The Liability Worksheet Return Detail report will show you the B&O taxes in column AC: Other Adjustments:
    • Reports > (Under Standard Sales Tax Reports) Click Liability Worksheet Exports
    • 2-Rep-rptstab2.jpg
    • Select Reporting Entity, Report Type, and the report criteria.
    • 9-Rep-LWSReturnDetail.jpg
    • Click Generate and open the report in Excel.


Note: If B&O has already been added to your worksheet and additional transactions are added after the fact, or if any of your transactions have tax amount/rate overrides, this will cause B&O to be recalculated at the time of filing your return. This will either cause a pull of additional funds or a refund at the end of the filing cycle, depending on if the B&O amount was raised or lowered.


B&O Tax will be entered as an Other Adjustment in your liability worksheet.

  • If you have informed us that you have a unique B&O filing requirement, a member of our Reconciliations team will make a manual adjustment to your B&O amount the worksheet already calculated.
  • These adjustments take place between the 8th though the 10th of each month.
  • If you have any questions about how your B&O tax was calculated or why your B&O tax changed, please contact

The B&O tax is not applied to individual transactions, so it is not shown on the transactions in the Admin Console.



Even though it isn't labeled as such, the B&O amount is placed in column AC: Other Adjustments.
