Please refer to the following steps to generate Year End Tax Reports:


Step# 1 (Donor Consolidation)



Before the generation of Year End Tax Reports, you are requested to find and consolidate duplicate donors in your system so all transactions are effectively associated with the correct donor. There should be only  1 corresponding donor record (primary) for a donor, all other records for this donor should be consolidated. Please refer below article regarding further details:



Step# 2 (Year End Summary generation)


Year End Summaries or Tax Reports can be generated for an individual donor or a combined report of all donors who are present in your system and has made at least one transaction in donation categories during the specified time period.

Important Note:
- The process for YES generation executes every 15 mins except between 3am - 10am Central time.
- If process of year end summary generation is executed again for the donor, then his/her previously generated report will NOT be accessible and link shared via email becomes INVALID. Please make sure to email the year end summary receipts to donors ONLY after the final generation.
