Symptoms

When attempting to enter a supplier from Spain or Italy and not enter the taxpayer ID,
the following error occurs.

ERROR
-----------------------
"The Taxpayer ID you have entered does not conform to the format requirements for the country you have specified. Please enter a valid Taxpayer ID."


STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Enter new supplier
Organization Name = Testname
Country of Origin = Spain
2. Apply
Result: error appears

Expected behavior: Sometimes the taxpayer ID is not available. However we always want to be able to register a supplier even when the taxpayer ID is not available. Want to be able to enter a supplier without a taxpayer ID

Validation should be fired off when a taxpayer ID is entered

Workaround Initially enter another country of Origin. After application change the country
