In OpenCheckout, we have a "catalog" which is basically the inventory
item information table.  Each item in the catalog has a flag,
"tax_included", which does this.  The item also has a "tax_group"
indicator to show which tax(es) apply to it.

So I would guess that whatever the inventory abstraction is that you
use, it needs to include information about the taxability of each item.
