GL Tax Options

Goal

PROBLEM DESCRIPTION
===================
We had setup default Tax codes based on GL Accounts in Tax Option: Accounts
Form in GL. However when we upgraded our system from 11i to R12 we found Tax
Option: Account form is quit changes and does not contain the Descriptive FlexField (DFF) which was
there in 11i on same form.

We were using Tax Option: Account DFF on line level for some information, but
now it does not appear in R12 although we have checked our data in back end
it exists in database tables.

STEPS TO REPRODUCE
==================
1. Login to System Administrator > Application > Flexfield > Descriptive >
Segments > search for application General Ledger , Title: Tax Options:
Accounts and setup here the DFFs
2. Login to GL responsibility > Tax Options and see that DFFs are enabled only at Header
Level, the DFFs are not enabled at Lines level

BUSINESS REQUIREMENT
====================
Our requirement is to have the same functionality like in 11i - the DFF in GL
Tax Options should be setup at Invoice Line Level also
