    Good Article Kristof, we have some Sites where System Generates the TAX, while we want to reach a RRP of example 70.00 we must Input a Price of 59.574 but we find the system rounds up to 70.01 or 69.99 depending what we play with. Is there any guidlines on how to fix this?

    Thanks Kristof for your swift Reply. I did manage to get it displaying correctly by changing the store.php roundprice() to use 3 decimal places. I must test now like you mentioned above.

    After hours of research I tried to extract the shipping tax rate directly from the database via sql and it seems to work:

    private function getShippingTaxRate($store) {
    		$tax_class_id 	= Mage::helper('tax')->getShippingTaxClass($store);
    		$resource 		= Mage::getSingleton('core/resource');
    		$readConnection = $resource->getConnection('core_read');
       		$tableName 		= $resource->getTableName('tax_calculation_rate'); //because of prefix !
    		$tableName2 	= $resource->getTableName('tax_calculation');
       		$query 			= 'SELECT rate FROM ' . $tableName . ' WHERE tax_calculation_rate_id=(SELECT tax_calculation_rate_id FROM ' . $tableName2 . ' WHERE product_tax_class_id='.$tax_class_id.')';
       		$shipping_rate = $readConnection->fetchOne($query);   		
       		return $shipping_rate;

    I am a Magento beginner, so I am not sure if this is good practice or not. I will be greatful for any comments.
