Information folios reflect the tax that is temporarily posted at the time the folio is generated.

Deposit payments. When the Cashiering>Advanced Deposit Handling application setting chosen by the property is an option that prints a folio, deferred tax amounts will be included in the amount specified on the Payment screen for deposit payments.
