Issues Updating Tax Status with File Exchange

We are having an issue updating the tax status of some of our items via our data file exchanges.  Hopefully someone can provide some information on what may be going on. 

 

Here is the wrapper technology we use: http://developer.ebay.com/devzone/bulk-data-exchange/ReleaseNotes.html
Which is actually part of this call to do the daily updates we perform: http://developer.ebay.com/DevZone/xml/docs/Reference/ebay/ReviseFixedPri...
 

For example, we have this item (amongst others) which don't require sales tax yet eBay adds tax to these purchases when they are shipped to PA.  (one of two states set to charge tax in the web-based tax table)

We don't understand why eBay is not taking our daily item updates literally because we send "FALSE" for the use-tax-table tag every day for this item. Here is what we sent earlier this morning:

<ReviseFixedPriceItemRequest xmlns="urn:ebay:apis:eBLBaseComponents">
                <MessageID>7C746290</MessageID>
                <ErrorLanguage>en_US</ErrorLanguage>
                <WarningLevel>High</WarningLevel>
                <Version>583</Version>
                <Item>
                                <Site>US</Site>
                                <UseTaxTable>false</UseTaxTable>
                                <ItemID>120777763811</ItemID>
                                <SKU>433602</SKU>
                                <Quantity>5</Quantity>
                                <StartPrice>24.91</StartPrice>
                                <UUID>7C744D945056BF45E60C852C83A41084</UUID>
                </Item>
</ReviseFixedPriceItemRequest>

And we received this cheerful and successful response:

<ReviseFixedPriceItemResponse xmlns="urn:ebay:apis:eBLBaseComponents">
   <Timestamp>2012-02-14T15:28:01.993Z</Timestamp>
   <Ack>Success</Ack>
   <CorrelationID>7C746290</CorrelationID>
   <Version>760</Version>
   <Build>E760_CORE_BUNDLED_14437182_R1</Build>
   <ItemID>120777763811</ItemID>
   <SKU>433602</SKU>
   <StartTime>2011-09-13T17:55:41.000Z</StartTime>
   <EndTime>2012-03-11T17:55:41.000Z</EndTime>
   <Fees>
                <!--extra stuff omitted here-->
   </Fees>
</ReviseFixedPriceItemResponse>

We are under the impression that a product's TaxTable setting can change after the creation of the posting. Other attributes, like "Title" raise an explicit failure message if we try to change. If we cannot change the tax-table, then presumably we'll have to drop all non-taxable postings and re-add to make sure they are ringing up correctly?

 

Any information or insight would be helpfull..

 

Thanks,

 

Andrew
