    Hi

    I want to create a Withholding Tax with Tax Jurisdiction with City, using Global Configuration Owner. However, when I want to save the tax, it shows an error:

    "This precedence level already exists. Create unique precedence levels for tax jurisdictions that apply to the same tax. (ZX-885139)".

    However, when I create Withholding Tax under BU or LE like configuration owner, I can save taxes with this kind of jurisdictions.

    Thanks.

    Cristian.

      As per user guide page 2-34  The tax within a jurisdiction can have different rates for the parent and child geographies. For example, a city sales tax rate can override a county rate for the same tax. In this case, you
      can set up an override geography type for the city and apply a precedence level to the city and county tax jurisdictions, to indicate which jurisdiction takes precedence.
      The migrated precedence level is typically - 100 for all cities, 200 for all counties and 300 for all states

      We have the validation that when the GEOGRAPHY_USE = 'TAX' and if the user creates any Jurisdiction that exists with same regime, tax and precedence level, we will show referred message.

      This is validation is required for manual update/new setups due the following reasons:
       

      1. In the product you can create Tax Geographies by using Tax Zone functionality.
      2. In the Tax Zone, you may create multiple Tax Zones under the same Tax Zone type.
      3. Further you can select the same Geographies in the Tax Zones created for a Tax Zone Type.
      4. Further note that you can add the new Geographies in the existing Tax Zones.
      5. The check/validation is required so that the system can pick the correct Jurisdiction based on the precedence level.
      6. In the absence of such check, we may face issues in correctly picking the jurisdiction specially if they have the same geographies.
      7. For the migrated set up, we already maintain the check for unique Tax Zones hence the another check is not required.
