It's vital that you be able to keep a good eye on the financials of your business so you can view how well your company is doing. QuickBooks Online has multiple reports to help you be able to view the information you need. I can provide some information about reports.
In order to view a report that shows you amounts that include taxes, you can do so in the Transaction list by supplier. It shows by default the amount including taxes. If you'd also see the amount without taxes, you can click on the Gear icon at the top of the report, and select to show the Net amount.

I would like to be able to run a budget-to-actuals report where the 'actuals' includes all taxes paid. As a non-profit, we need our budget to estimate all costs, including taxes, by account. So when we compare the 'actual' expenses, we need to see what the full expenses were including taxes.
I have seen your replies on how to do that by vendor but I need to be able to do it by account, or we could set up our classes to match the budget, or possibly by donor. But there needs to be some way to see the expenses including all taxes. I put that info into QB with each invoice - why can't I get it out?
I tried that but there are no totals - just individual transactions including taxes. Not really helpful.
Please see my note below. Without the ability to see how much we spent overall, the usefulness of the software is really diminished. I did try manually adding the total expense column from my P&L to a 'tax amount' column but that doesn't work either because provincial taxes are double counted.
