Brazilian Resolution 13 - Tax Rules Inconsistencies - Tax Issue

Brazilian Resolution 13 - Tax Rules Inconsistencies (Exception by Fiscal Classification Code x Exception by Item Origin) when apply in the rule level:

You have different fiscal ICMS scenarios to the same Transaction Type.
To one scenario, the Tax Rates are calculating Exception by Item Origin (TAX RULE LEVEL 1).
To other scenario, the Tax Rates are calculating Exception by Fiscal Classification Code (TAX RULE LEVEL 2).
Finally, if these last two scenarios will not apply the tax rules, the system uses Ship From/Ship To Site Tax Code (TAX RULE LEVEL 3).

When the Tax Rule works, with priority levels, the Tax Rule with same Tax Category, same Transaction Type and same Contributor Value found a setup in the first level can ignore other levels.

The problem occurs when the Inventory Item has an Exception by Item Origin and at the same time this Inventory Item has a fiscal classification used in exception by Fiscal Classification Code with tax base reduction.

That is occurring: The Exception by Item Origin is conflicting the Tax Rate and stopping the transactions issuing with error.

ERROR
-----------------------
Find bellow the error:
APP-AR-11526:
EXCEPTION(NO_DATA_FOUND): jl_zz_tax.get_legal_message

It’s wrong, because there are two different scenarios to the same Transaction Type and the same Latin Tax Group.
When you use other rules, for example: Latin Tax Group Tax Code or Ship From / Ship to Site Tax Code the taxes are calculating correctly skipping the other rule priority levels.
Would be correct calculate the tax from the rule level priority 1 (Ship From/To Site Exception by Item Origin Tax Code) and skip other priorities.
