R12 : Document Subtype in 'Addition Tax Information' Page Is Set to Exclude Tax but Tax Is Not Excluded in 'Manage Tax' Screen. (Doc ID 1940361.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 16, 2015

Applies to:

Oracle Purchasing - Version 12.1.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Document Subtype on the Purchase Order (PO) is set to "Excluded", but Tax is not excluded as expected, the header in Manage Tax is still showing Tax amount but the Tax Lines are NULL.
The rule is working fine for Payables (AP) Invoice, when the Invoice Sub type field is populated, Tax is excluded.

Reproducible Steps

1. Create a PO, save it. Tax is calculated as per Tax Rules.
2. Update the PO -> Manage Tax -> Additional Tax Information -> populate a value in "Document Subtype" to exclude and apply
3. Re query the PO - the Tax lines are gone, but the Tax amount is still shown in Manage Tax screen.
4. Also, note this works perfectly fine on AP Invoice and this rule is not specific to Transaction type - PO, AP, SO or AR Invoice
