I updated a project from Magento 1.5 to Magento 126.96.36.199. In the latest Mage CE Version we have vat_id attribute in customer_address. During checkout this field is used to validate a customer for 0% tax calculation. This all works fine.
Strange thing however is that when var_dumping customer_address_entity the vat_id field is not present. The other vat_* related fields are however.
I need the field to update the data in addresses for existing customers that have an old customer_entity related taxvat attribute value.
Anyone an idea on how I can access the vat_id field or where it even is?
