    The tax indicator in material master is used for automatically propose the tax code in the PO line item.

    You will have to maintain condition records for the condition type 'JTAX' in the Tocde: MEK1.

      I think Vijay explained it pretty well. Only thing to add as a tip:

      Remember the tables shown in the ME1K are searched in sequence. So you can overide the value defined at the most generic table (i.e Material only) with more specific entries including plant, acct assignment category etc.

      Also, to understand this search in practice, use the "Analyse" button on the conditions tab for PO item in ME23N, to get a full picture of which condition records were found and why.
