Last updated on MARCH 02, 2017

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise SCM Purchasing - Version 9.1 to 9.2 [Release 9]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

PO and Voucher calculate sales/use tax differently. When a purchase order is created with sales tax and split distributions, the tax calculated at the PO Distrib level is not equal to the tax calculated at the Voucher Distrib level.
When the available budget is at zero, this variance can cause a budget exception of Exceeds Budget Tolerance.


The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Set tax authority to have tax percentage = 6.875.
2. Create a purchase order for quantity 1 @ 44.78900. Split the Distribution 50/50. Dispatch the PO.
3. Voucher the PO. Enter the Tax Amount per the tax summary on the voucher. Adjust the Total and save the voucher.
4. Compare SALETX_AMT on PO_LINE_DISTRIB to SALETX_AMT on DISTRIB_LINE
