I am simply looking for a billing total for the year 2016 for my taxes as Google AdWords is a business expense.

Hi @emajes

 

One simple quick way maybe to set your date range from jan 1 2016 - 31 dec 2016 all campaigns and this should give you a total of how much the account spend during this period. 

 

The date range can be found on the calendar on the right hand side of the user interface

 

All the best

Hi James, yes, I have done all of the reports including the one you mentioned but they break down each month and each month has several different costs such as; credits, debits, starting balance, and balances. I just need a total cost for the fiscal year 2016. I guess I could just add up all of my monthly bills manually, but there should be a simpler way to access the total.

Hey @emajes

 

I see.

 

Perhaps export them as CSV and use excel for grouping this data? You could custom the dare range.

 

Top right, cog > billing >  export as csv > custom date range. 

 

This should be what you need?

Hi James,

 

Yes, that would probably work just fine using Excel. I just added up the "debits" for each month. It only takes a few seconds. I just thought there should be a "total" at the bottom of the page for annual tax purposes.

 

Thanks James for your prompt assistance.
