Reproducing the Issue

In app "Manage G/L Account Master Data", try to change field "Tax Category" for a G/L account.


If the G/L account has a balance, then it is correct behavior that "Tax Category" cannot be changed.


You need to remove the balance by generating a posting against this account, then field "Tax Category" can be changed.
