Kindly state your reason for wanting the same.

All suggestions with clear use cases will foster quicker adoption and assimilation into the codebase.

This will come in handy especially on cases where you supply goods to customers who have been exempted for certain taxes and
your regular customers who you have to apply tax. So one Item might be taxed differently from customer to customer. Also, the government occasionally grants tax exemptions for certain goods for a specified period.

Currently you have to edit an item to change the tax type and later revert it when you are done creating the invoice. It is a desirable feature to be able to change the tax type on fly but still having the default tax selected.

Could this be of any help?

This is helpful but only to some point. In a situation where the government grants tax exemptions to specific items but your invoice contains other taxed items, here, your cannot select multiple branches for the invoice. Also where a customer has actual branches, you will have to duplicate the branches so as to tax differently. Creating duplicate branches also seems to be more of a hack. I would suggest we have a drop down to select Item Tax Type per line item in sales Invoice...

I still think making FA more flexible in that aspect is very desirable. It is also more user friendly.

I believe this has been discussed before:

No decisive answer as It seems it is a huge effort to change the core to accommodate this.
