Object documentation Tax with Jurisdiction Code   Locate the document in its SAP Library structure


A jurisdiction code is a key that, in conjunction with the tax code, determines the amount of tax and the breakdown of the total tax amount among the different tax authorities.


In the USA and Brazil, taxes are sometimes calculated using jurisdiction codes.


The jurisdiction code contains several different components.


Jurisdiction Code 250221105

25 = State Code

022 = County Code

1105 = City Code



In order to post a document using a jurisdiction code, you must ensure that all the state codes (= the highest level of the jurisdiction code) in a document have the same tax base (net or gross) and the same cash discount basis.


In jurisdiction code 250221105, taxes are determined based on the definition for jurisdiction code 250000000.

If all the jurisdiction codes in a document do not have the same state code, you must manually separate the transaction into individual documents.
