You have set up external tax determiantion rule for state CA (in country US),  where jurisdiction rule is set as ST (Ship To). And also Vertex activated in the system.

In the sales order here, the sales unit is in sate/country=CA/US and ship to country is in Brazil. This triggers the external tax determination and leads to consider Brazil, but with Vertex this won't work.

The intergration scenaior (External Tax Determination + Vertex) is not supported.


You need to remove this external tax determination rule.
