You have created a customized Tax Jurisdiction. However when creating the supplier invoice, the system is picking both tax jurisdictions (Standard and customized). You expected that only the customized would be picked.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Supplier Invoicing work center. 
  2. Go to Invoices and Credit Memos view. 
  3. Search for ABC (ABC is the invoice's ID). 
  4. Click in Edit button. 
  5. Navigate to Items tab.
  6. Navigate to Taxes subtab. 
  7. Check the Taxes section, there are two entries (those are examples listed below):
    • Tax Jurisdiction: Region A" -> "Tax Rate: 5%"
    • Tax Jurisdiction: Region A 2%" -> "Tax Rate: 2%"
  8. You expected that it would show the second entry (customized one, 2%), and not both of them. 


If you want to keep only the % of the customized tax jurisdiction, the user cannot maintain the Tax Jurisdiction Code similar to the code of the standard one. 
For example, for region Connecticut, the Tax Jurisdiction Code is 'CT'. For the customized one, do not maintain as 'CT*' (* is any other character) because the system will insert the standard rate plus the customized rate when creating the invoice. 
For this example, you can maintain the Tax Jurisdiction Code as 'C1'. 


Steps to create the customized Tax Jurisdiction:

  1. Go to Business Configuration work center.
  2. Go to Implementation Projects view.
  3. Select the current implementation project.
  4. Select Open Activity List button.
  5. Navigate to Fine-Tune phase.
  6. Open the Tax on Goods and Services activity.
  7. Select the hyperlink Define Tax Jurisdictions to edit or create tax jurisdiction codes.

Steps specific to create the customized Tax Jurisdiction in US region:

  1. Go to Business Configuration work center. 
  2. Go to Overview view. 
  3. Search for *Tax on Goods*. 
  4. Open activity 'Tax on Goods and Services - US'. 
  5. Open the link 'Define Tax Jurisdictions'. 
  6. Click in Add Row button. 
  7. Insert the 'Region', the customized 'Tax Jurisdiction Code' and the 'Description' (remember to maintain the Code with a different structure from the Standard one). 
  8. Save it.
