    You should be able to create a sketch on one of the side faces, draw a rectangle to represent the area to remove, then extrude/remove

    Build geometry:
    1. add a chamfer, select an edge RMB (right mouse button), pick on chamfer
    2. do what neil says, but add 45˚ draft to the extrude/remove to get the 45˚ cut.

    Drawings:
    Why is this under drawings? If you want to add the callout to a drawing, I have no idea.
