I agree with the suggestion that the government *ought* to publish
machine readable tax data at no charge. Establishing an open format is a
necessary first step in that direction. Our customers are US importers,
and the US gov publishes quite a bit of machine readable data
necessary to properly file entries. That trend needs to grow, if
they expect compliance with ever more complex tax codes.
