Invoice with manual tax item blocked with block R

We have 2 invoices posted: 1) with manual tax item in "G/L Account" tab 2) with automatic tax item posted through tax code.

Accounting documents are identical.

But first invoice blocked with block R (Invoice Verification), second - not. MRBR show "Amount" difference with the amount posted through "G/L Account" tab.

Please advise why is this happening and how to post manual tax item correctly to avoid block R?

When you post an invoice in MIRO, it expect the GR'ed (net) amount to be posted in full to GRIR account and gross amount on the vendor (header). The system then will split the gross into net and tax. Tax amount will be posted automatically using the tax code configuration.
Obviously you broke that logic when you split the amount manually and put the tax amount manually to the tax GL.
I would recommend you to block the tax GL from manual postings to avoid the issue.

The reason why we are posting manual tax item, is that tax account is cost element and therefore need cost object assignment. This way, accountants allocate non-deductable taxes to responsible cost centers/WBS elements.

Usually non-deductible taxes are posted to the same GL as the expenses they relate to.
NVV account key in the tax code config usually makes the trick.
Why do you have a different logic?

This is requirements of our accounting department. They want to see this non-deductable tax amount separately and allocated to cost-center (budget) of responsible department.

Then enter this non-ded tax as a separate line item in PO.
