Should Purchase Orders in QB include tax and shipping

I fill out purchase orders in QB2014 when I make purchases online. This includes all the information for the order including shipping and tax calculations. When the vendor ships separately items from the same PO, I receive separate invoices, the total amounts of which are difficult to reconcile with my original purchase order in QB because those POs include tax and shipping for all items. This makes it much more difficult & time consuming to enter and pay bills, since I then have to parse out the actual tax and shipping for the items received, not the items originally ordered. Is it better to just not include tax and shipping when filling out a PO in QB, then add those values when I receive invoices?

a PO is non posting so how you do it on there is up to you it is just a memo of what has been ordered, the bill is what matters, and usually if the bill entered does not match the PO being used, QB will ask if you want the PO changed

yes you have to portion out the shipping/taxes et al, across all the items received  on the bill
