Hi Nigel,

A "select all" for tax report on each line of the invoice would save a

When creating a tax form, there's a check mark "Select by default". If you check it, every invoice line you create for every customer associated with that tax form will be checked by default. Does that solve your problem?
Yes it would.... but it doesn't seem to work. Invoices I create for the customer don't have the boxes checked automatically and the tax report doesn't show the invoices. If I then go back to the invoice, check the tax form box in the invoice and run the tax report again, it shows up.

Before I sent my mail to you, I tested it as follows (and it worked) -- admittedly with the latest version of the 1.3 branch, which identifies itself as 1.3.30:

Went to Tax Forms -> Add Tax Form.
Selected "Netherlands" as the country for the tax form.
Entered "NL" in the description
Checked "Select by Default".

Then I went to a customer for which the country is set to Netherlands (don't know if that matters), went to the Accounts screen (there was only 1 account for this customer) and selected the NL tax form and saved changes.

Then, I went to enter an AR transaction, selected the modified customer and the form was already showing the "Tax Form" column with a checkmark.

Maybe we're testing different things though?

We are. You are testing AR transactions (where it works). I'm testing Sales invoices (where it doesn't)
