Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Tax Management Work Center - Withholding Tax Returns view.
  2. Show Tax Returns in Preparation.
  3. Highlight Tax Return ID XXX and press Release.

The Error Message "Source document ABC reported in Tax Return XXX not posted" appears.


In the Supplier Invoice line items exist with different Ship To and the Delivery Address details. For India, all Invoice items must have the same location details.


  1. You have to cancel Supplier Invoice ABC and create two separate invoices per Ship to and Delivery address. 
  2. After the different invoices are posted, cancel the existing Withholding Tax Return XXX.
  3. Schedule the Withholding Tax Return run again to create a new Withholding Tax Return ID YYY (where YYY represents the new Withholding Tax Return ID).
  4. Release the newly created Withholding Tax Return ID YYY.

The Error Message no longer appears.
