Sales tax payment (class form)

Applies To: Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Feature Pack, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012

Click General ledger > Periodic > Sales tax payments > Sales tax payments.

Use this form to calculate the sales tax that is due for a given period. The settlement calculation includes the posted sales tax for the selected settlement period for the tax transactions in the Posted sales tax form. The calculation includes only the sales tax that has not yet been paid to the sales tax authority.

You can make several payments for a single period. To post the settlement automatically, specify a number sequence for the sales tax payment voucher in the Number sequences area of the General ledger parameters form.

If you have created a vendor account for the sales tax authority for the settlement period, a vendor transaction is created automatically when you select the Update check box and then click OK. If no vendor account is specified, a user must manually create a payment to the sales tax authority to pay the sales tax that is owed for the settlement period.


To report the sales tax payment correctly to the sales tax authority, select the correct report format in the Report layout field in the Sales tax authorities form. To print or view the settled sales taxes for a settlement period, specify the report details in the Sales tax payments form.

The following table provides descriptions for the controls in this form.

From date

Specify the first day of the sales tax settlement period to be calculated. This corresponds to the date in the From date field in the Sales tax settlement periods form.

Transaction date
