Probably near the top of Vend::Interpolate::salestax().
There are ways to do what you need without hacking the core. For
instance, you could [assign] a zero salestax value when you find that
a user is logged and has the tax_exempt preference scratch set true.
Having said that, a "standard" (in-core) facility might be a useful
feature. I can see it being used on new ecommerce-based websites that
find that they need to deal with international orders between countries
that use the VAT system (UK and Europe).
