Address blocks have both a Billing location type and a Billing checkbox which has been confusing CiviCRM users and developers for years. Let's remove the "Billing location for this contact" checkbox from the address block and just use the Location type, Billing.
Creating this Lab issue to see if anyone is also interested on finally solving this problem.
Discussions on this topic go back to 2009. In 2016 we had an acknowledgement that this should be sorted out, https://issues.civicrm.org/jira/browse/CRM-17783 Coleman Watts added a comment - 2016-01-20 18:58
I agree, the location type and the checkbox need to be resolved into one. Is this something you can work on a bit?
