Nothing in Interchange says that you need to use "state" for
sales tax. You can also write your own custom taxing function
in a UserTag and use that instead of [fly-tax].

There are several ways taxing can be done; with the Levies system
you can control it even more finely.

Just change the field you use to qualify for SalesTax, and set it to
some appropriate value in the user database. It can be done in the
Profile for a dealer or distributor, just like pricing is.

Suffice it to say that you can do what you need to do with a minimum
of trouble once you just sit down and do it.
