Suggested transaction tax system

Nah, I go to a store (grocery, home depot, whatever). Each line-item
on my receipt will have a 'T' to indicate that it is taxable, or
nothing to indicate that it is non-taxable. At the bottom there is a
'subtotal' and then a 'tax'. There are not two subtotals on the
receipt (although I suppose GnuCash could show both sub-subtotals).
Me, I just want to put down "groceries", or "home goods", but I
wouldn't due to a mixed of taxable vs. non-taxable items.
