This seems too complicated so I am guessing totals are more general. What level of detail is required when submitting a yearly tax calculation.

Jenn from TaxJar here. We help you out with this as well. Long story short:
When you register for your California sales tax permit the California BOE will issue your number and a filing frequency. This will be either monthly, quarterly or annually depending on your sales volume.
From there, if you're using TaxJar's API you'll also have access to our reporting, where we'll break down your sales tax collected for you (on your platform and any other platforms on which you sell) and give you all the info you need to fill out California's sales tax return. Here's a blog post about California specifically:
