And yet apparently still not 100% definitive:

 "By examining the WSDL, you may see that the service can return multiple tax
 rates (multiple TaxInfo results).  This is because at the zip code
level, it is
 possible that there may be additional matches found.   Zip codes can border
 multiple cities and counties and each might have a different tax rate.  It is
 important to consider all of the results since any of them may be the
correct one."[0]

The Heisenberg's Tax Uncertainty Principle.  Shoot me now.
