Subject: Re: [ubl] Comments from Tax XML on Invoice and Small Business Subsetsubmission - Tax Category

Sorry it has taken me a while to get around to this.  Somehow it just kept slipping through my intray!

I can see from the submission that TaxXML define item tax category as:
"A categorization or classification of items that may be used to identify items from the perspective of determining tax liability. For example, items categorized as clothing may be subject to a standard tax rate in a particular jurisdiction, however a sub category of clothing, such as children’s clothing may be nontaxable or zero-rated, while another sub category such as luxury clothing, for example furs, could have a surcharge or higher tax rate."

UBL has used Tax Category as :
"information directly relating to a specific tax category". For example, "ZeroRatedGoods" "NotTaxable" "Standard Rate".

With UBL it is, in fact, the Tax Category the is used for the actual charges.

In other words UBL sees Tax Category as a subset of a Tax, whereas i think TaxXML see it as a subset of an Item (or classification of an Item).

So where UBL may have a Tax Category value of "ZeroRatedGoods", TaxXML would expect to see values like "Children's Clothing".  

Is that correct?

Is it that UBL assumes the taxability assessment has been done and TaxXML  simple provides the raw information?

Clearly there is a relationship between these two and we should decide how to model them.

3) For the UBL Invoice, they would like further information on our definition of Tax Category and Item Tax Category.  After studying Stephen Greens questions, and the UBL issues list, it does not appear that their definition for these items is the same as UBL's.  Upon receipt of this additional information, they will answer Stephen's questions and submit additional comments.
