The Sales tax reporting codes refer to a field number on a sales tax report. They are used on country specific report layouts and the Sales tax payment by code report to print sales tax amounts for a settlement period summarized per reporting code. After you create Sales tax reporting codes, you can refer to them on the Report setup FastTabs in the Sales tax code page.
