The following issues occur on application version 12.1.1

After having set up tax rules to control tax calculation for expense reports and standard invoices, discover the following issues:

(a) When the Internet Expenses (OIE) invoice is created in AP, the resultant 'Miscellaneous' Line type line for these invoices ALWAYS shows an specific tax code, even if the corresponding 'Item' type line shows something different It is expecting the 'Miscellaneous' line to show same tax code from the original line.

(b) Because the Miscellaneous Line type line is showing a tax code, but the corresponding tax entries are not created (due to the tax rules), this has implication on auditability.

Steps to reproduce
Create invoices from expense report import of credit card transactions (note that the tax rules were independently created) ; report the above symptoms

Business impact
This can cause audit issues - the users do not have access to define or view tax rules so it is difficult for them to explain this to an auditor.
