MAX() is a group function, you need to have Group By clause,

and Max() works on numeric, but you are trying to have MAX(rtt.name), which doesn't work properly.

Hi,

The error (line 7) isn't at

MAX(CASE rtt.usage_code WHEN N''r'' THEN rtt.name END) AS input_tax_name  

instead check the clause:

WHERE rtt.retail_tax_hierarchy_id = sisttv.retail_tax_hierarchy_id
  AND i.name like COALESCE(@name_filter, i.name)
  AND sisttv.business_unit_id = @business_unit_id
  AND ( i.item_hierarchy_id in (
      ((SELECT item_hierarchy_id
          FROM item_hierarchy_list
         WHERE parent_item_hierarchy_id = COALESCE( @item_hierarchy_id, i.item_hierarchy_id )
         UNION
        SELECT COALESCE( @item_hierarchy_id, i.item_hierarchy_id ) ))  ))
AND i.item_type_code NOT IN ( 'e', 's', 'r', 'j', 'k' )

You need to repeat the single quote character inside a string
       MAX(CASE rtt.usage_code WHEN N'''r''' THEN rtt.name END) AS input_tax_name,
       MAX(CASE rtt.usage_code WHEN N'''r''' THEN ISNULL(sisttv.tax_percentage,0) END) AS input_tax_rate,
       MAX(CASE rtt.usage_code WHEN N'''s''' THEN rtt.name END) AS output_tax_name,
       MAX(CASE rtt.usage_code WHEN N'''s''' THEN ISNULL(sisttv.tax_percentage,0) END) AS output_tax_rate
