Yes I got around to testing Google Checkout shopping cart (https://checkout.google.com/sell).

Off the shelf it seems to be built much smarter than the other guy. Once you get into configuring your Settings you'll run across both Tax and Shipping.  This is pretty smart, intuitive. You set your default store location zip code (for USA) then add shipping options which include FedEx, UPS, USPS.  Once you select to checkout and sign into Google, you set up your credit card if necessary then sit back as the sales taxes is computed via the TLD tax database and shipping via the carrier's API (assuming Google is not storing this).

Bottom line - Google Checkout passes!
