Difference between TAX CODE and TAX JURISIDICTION CODE

Hi,

Can someone explain me the difference between TAX CODE and TAX JURISDICTION CODE?

Both are derived based on the delivery address in the PO right?

    Tax jurisdiction codes are required only in US and Canada. Tax codes are normally used to determine the Tax rates.

    Jurisdiction for Tax Calculation - Tax Jurisdiction Code

    The tax jurisdiction is used for determining the tax rates in the USA/CANADA. It defines to which tax authorities you must pay your taxes. It is always the city to which the goods are supplied.

    The tax jurisdiction code is used in the United States for determining tax rates. The tax jurisdiction code defines the tax authority to which taxes must be paid. The determining location is the location to which the items are delivered.

    Jurisdiction code is picked from the delivery address ( if your delivery address comes from Plant, then Jurisdiction code comes from the Plant business partner).

    Tax codes are picked from customizing. You can configure them per Country/Product category combination in SPRO (Determine Tax Code for Country/Product Category)

    You can make settings for Domestic or International purchases
