Today I have been working through an issue with commerce tax. I had to apply a patch that allows me to configure taxes a bit more.
The patch allows Drupal commerce to decouple the tax calculation with the store address. That way the Drupal commerce store can have multiple tax rates instead of one tax rate for the state the store is located in.

Update - May 10, 2019
The patch has been working great and allows the Drupal Commerce website function as requested.
