[OFBiz] Users - multiple tax authorities in same Geo

cjhowe
Additionally, in what appears to be a rare case, if there are different taxing authorities collecting wouldn't there also be multiple taxes being applied to the product?  ie.
Widget = $100
Sales tax = 7%
Sin tax = 3%
Not a sprocket tax = 0.5%

Solving this isn't a an accounting issue as each would be applied to their appropriate account.  However, this may be an issue (i would think a small one if it exists at all) for the calculation of tax, and additionally the display of the tax on an invoice, etc.

I'm just hoping if it were a common need, that we
not make people have
to resort to such measures. But it doesn't seem
like anybody has spoken
up. Which is a good thing, I guess--we all need
more efficient government.

Does this happen *anywhere* in real life?

Re: [OFBiz] Users - multiple tax authorities in same Geo

David E. Jones
In reply to this post by Matthew E. Porter

Those 2 issues, ie taxes of different types of items and tax  
holidays, are considered the same Geo and tax authority Party, but  
the SimpleSalesTaxLookup table has effective dates (simplistic and  
somewhat difficult to maintain for tax holidays, but works), and  
there is also a tax category ID on the tax lookup entity and on the  
Product entity which if present must match.
