I asked this question just weeks ago and the silence was irritating 
since someone has to had to have dealt with this already.

For teh data source, one of the least expensive solutions I've found is 
a product from the 'Sales Tax Clearinghouse' which provides monthly or 
quarterly updates of the tax tables in a fixed record format.  I've 
already created a table with the imported values and will be working on 
a tags that will validate the zip,state,city combinations when a ship-to 
or account is setup and another to pull the current rates at the time of 
ordering...  If you're interested in working together on this, contact 
me off-list...
