QUOTE: You can download transaction information as a comma-delimited or tab-delimited file, and then open it using any spreadsheet program, such as Microsoft Excel. You can also upload the file into your bookkeeping or accounting solution, such as Quicken or QuickBooks.
I have been using Quicken for over 10 years and I am fairly certain it does NOT accept CSV files. Can anyone explain?

I'm in NY ... we have a tax for the state, and each locality (county and a couple of cities) also have taxes. I only need to collect taxes in my own county .... but there is no way I can find in eBay to accomplish that.
Anyone know how?

Does anyone know what about the district tax in California? Almost every county and even some cities here have an additional sales tax rate on top of the 7.25% state sales tax. Ebay's list does not allow to add that.
(1) Does it need to be collected on ebay-type sales?
(2) If yes, how?

*I'd also like to know how I'm supposed to charge my city's sales tax too for washington residents or just residents that live my city/state...or do I just pay that on my own and the buyer only pays the state tax???

Realize this is kinda old but I was wondering if you found any information about collecting district sales tax for California. Please update if you have. Thank you!

Is there a report or summary of the total sales tax I collected ?
I started keeping a record for the first 8 month then slacked off the last 4 months.
I am hoping there is a summary somewhere hidden on the ebay site, or maybe paypal?
Thanks fellow ebayers

Thank you for being so thoughtful. I was wanting that, too.
Another CA tax question - in regards to Ebay, I had always heard that you have to sell over a certain amount of items or a certain amount of money for CA to make it mandatory to charge a sales tax on items sold. And we only had to charge sales tax on those Buyers in CA.
Now in 2013, has it become mandatory to charge Sales Tax on everything a Seller Sells? CA and any other state we sell to? :-(

Hello, I have the same question. For the past two years we have had to go through our PayPal accounts , one at a time to see how many sales had to pay sales tax. Quicken would probably be able to do it if you are savvy enough to figure it out!

"Now in 2013, has it become mandatory to charge Sales Tax on everything a Seller Sells? CA and any other state we sell to? :-(
Is this correct? Ebay has been automatically adding taxes that I first assumed they took and submitted to the state but it appears I assumed wrong. Furthermore Ebay has calculated sales tax only on CA purchased auctions and not out of state.
This is getting complicated so clarification of some sort from an expert, CA tax rep or even EBAY would be very helpful.

To charge sales tax:
For a new listing you click on "Sell" at the top of your page. Then in the upper right hand corner you'll see "Switch to Advanced Tool", click on this. When you get to the bottom of setting up your listing (should be right after shipping options), you'll be given the option to setup sales tax (it will ask you for which state and the percentage you need to charge).
If it's a current listing, just edit your listing, you may have to again look for the "Switch to Advanced Tool" in the upper right hand corner of the screen. Again, at the bottom you'll find your option for charging sales tax.
Hope this helps.
