Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Customer Invoicing work center.
  2. Go to the Invoice Reqeusts view.
  3. Select the outbound delivery invoice request you want to edit and click Edit button to open it.
  4. In Items tab, select one row. 
  5. Go to Taxes tab, the Tax Date field is grayed out, you are not able to change the value.


For migrated sales orders, the price and tax fields are marked as statistical , that is the reason they are read only. This behaviour is copied all the way till invoicing.

Besides it, if the invoice requests are from invoice scheduling, tax date is not editable.


This is the current system designed behavior.

If you intend to change the tax date, you can 'Undo Release' of Outbound delivery,change the delivery and shippment date to the required value if possible and then release the outbound delivery and proceed with invoicing.

Tax date is derived from delivery date of outbound delivery.
