It gets even more interesting than that.

Here I would options that go like this:
1. 0% rated GST and PST
2. 5% GST and 0% PST
3. 0% GST and 8% PST (mostly insurance products but not limited to that)
4. 5% GST and 8% PST (the most common)
5. 5% GST and 1.?% PST for some thing (not remembering what)

what gets more interesting is that for certain products beneath quantity x
(which varies by product) tax is applicable and over it becomes 0% rated.
This can make things interesting depending on which way your transaction
is going. Then it depends if a product is shipped in from another province
or not, when selling am I selling in province or out of province - - - those
questions are re: PST (GST is more pervasive).
With all this I remember shaking my head at the tax levels in Germany.
There was a low tax (2-3% or so) then there was was 7/8% one and then
there was a 19% tax rate never did get an understanding as to the details!
Taxation regulations are, IMO, some of the most convoluted masses of
verbiage I have ever encountered.

Handling this possible variability is something that I'm really not sure
how to define in lsmb's tax tables. Any ideas?

Thanking you for your assistance and consideration.
