Issue:
====================
Paid Sales Tax amount seems incorrect when including a discount

[Example]
CA sales tax is 8.5%, Invoice amount is $627.80.
The total comes to $681.16. If paid within 10 days - the payment discount is on Merchandise only - $2.00 off.
PS pays $615.24 + sales tax that is inputted on voucher header.

The issue is the paid sales tax should be on the discounted amount ($615.24), not the $627.80 and
if the accounting does not manually adjust the sales tax and the total - having over payment of Sales Tax.

Step:
====================
1. Create a voucher with Invoice amount is $627.80.
2. Sales tax will be calculated based on the rate 8.5%. Sales Tax amount should be $53.36. The total comes to $681.16.
3. Invoice will pay within 10 days (use Payment Term "2% discount if paid within 10 days or NET30").
4. Run Pay Cycle
5. Check the paid amount.The paid sales tax is based on the Merchandise amount ($627.80) instead of the discounted amount ($615.24).
  So having over payment of Sales Tax.

Actual Behavior:
====================
The paid sales tax is based on the Merchandise amount instead of the discounted amount.
So having over payment of Sales Tax.

Expected Behavior:
====================
The paid sales tax should be based on the discounted amount instead of the Merchandise amount.

Business Impacts:
====================
Due to this issue, users will have over payment of Sales Tax when including a discount.
