You REALLY want to use a package and integrate it in your existing app.
 
Look at www.taxware.com (my current package) or www.vertexinc.com (in a former 
life).
 
Typically, the base (existing) application calls a tax interface program with 
50+ parameters to allow the tax package to return the appropriate federal, 
state, county, city, and other taxes that may apply to the jurisdiction.  The 
tax package should also provide auditability so the finance guys can print 
reports of the company's liability in different jurisdictions.
 
The rules are so different in each taxing body across the US, that it is 
considered prudent to buy a package that is responsible for knowing all the 
different nuances.  There's no way a company could economically keep track of 
it all by themselves.
 
Good luck!

Expanding a database to handle multiple tax authorities,
like city, state, county, airport, federal, "other". Is there a standard
code or id for taxing authorities? Any kind of national listing?
Using a tax package has been ruled out (this has to fit inside 
another package). Customers spread over US. 
This is parts, labor, and fuels.
