Customized Quarterly Business Review (QBR) tables
Use our Create a report tool to select the tables most important to you! You can use this tool to create local sales and use tax reports for specified jurisdictions, including jurisdictions not contained in the regular QBR publication, as well as gross business income tables, state retail sales tax tables, and a variety of other reports.
Quarterly Business Review publications by year
The QBR publications contain standardized tables detailing gross business income, taxable retail sales and accrued tax liability by major industry. Beginning with 2005, the QBR tables were converted from SIC to NAICS codes. This was an effort to move in line with national standards. For more information on SIC and NAICS codes please visit our Frequently asked questions.
