LedgerSMB::DBObject::TaxForm(3) Includes methods for saving and retrieving tax forms.


This module includes methods for saving and retrieving tax forms, and running reports. The tax forms are for reporting purchases or sales to tax bodies, and as of 1.3.0, the only tax forms officially included are those of the 1099-MISC and 1099-INT forms of the USA.

Currently there is no abstraction layer to allow replacing the various reports on the fly, but this will have to be implemented in the future.


save Saves the tax form. Inputs are:
form_name (required) The name of the form, eg, 1099-MISC
country_id (required) The id of the country
id (optional) The id of the tax form to overwrite

In the future it is likely that we will add a taxform_sproc_id too as part of an abstraction layer.

Retrieves information on the tax form specified and merges it with the current object. Properties set are:
id ID of tax form
form_name Name of tax form (eg, 1099-MISC)
country_id ID of country attached to tax form
No inputs required. Provides a list of hashrefs (and attaches them to the form property of the object hashref).

Each hashref has the same properties as are set by get($id) above, but also includes country_name which is the full name of the country (eg, 'United States').

Default ordering is by country name and then by tax form name.

No inputs needed

Returns a list of hashrefs representing tax forms. Each hashref contains the same properties as from get() above. Default ordering is by country id then tax form id.

Gets metadata for the screen.

Sets the following hashref properties

countries A list of all countries, for drop down box purposes.
default_country The default country of the organization, to set the dropdown box.
