Goal


What Causes Error:
Please specify the tax code. The line type requires tax calculation

OBSERVATIONS
-----------------
Sales order was not getting booked with error 'Please Specify The Tax Code. The Line Type Requires Tax Calculation'. When tax code is specified, order gets booked. Order Transaction type is linked with receivable transaction type having tax calculation as "Y".
Thought that if we specify tax code in "Tax Code Hierarchy" in AR system options, issue would be resolved. For this particular case (in US) it populated tax code as "Exempt" and order was successfully booked

However looking at another same example of a Different OU and tried to simulate same setup change and for this tax code did not get populated but order was booked.

STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Responsibility: Order Management Super User
2. Order Organizer > Sales Order
3. Enter required information at Header and Lines
4. Book the order
5. Error: Please specify the tax code. The line type requires tax calculation
