Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Purchase Requests and Orders work center
  2. Go to Purchase Orders
  3. Search for respective Purchase Order and click on edit
  4. Go to Items tab
  5. Navigate to Taxes tab

You will see a different tax code other than what you expected as per exemption that you maintained in Product master data.


The region/ province /state of the Ship to party address /recipient address in Purchase order/ invoice is taken in to consideration for tax determination, so system searches for the exemption details you maintained in the product master for the respective region/province/state. If not found system does not consider the exemption .


  1. Go to Product Portfolio work center
  2. Go to Products view
  3. Search for the respective Product
  4. Go to Taxes tab
  5. Click on Add row and enter all details and ensure you choose Region/Province that appears in the Ship to address/ Recipient address of the Purchase order or Supplier invoice
  6. Click on save
