a)When Taxing Authorities have implemented Sales Tax Percentage Rates to three (3) Decimal Places (e.g., nn.nnn%), this is one of the three Company Settings that, in this case, must be re-set to True to support Charging and Collecting this type of Sales Tax.  

b)Setting this 3DigitsTax option to True ("T") will activate this Three Decimal Places Sales Tax feature in the Tax Rates Form.

2.>>>> Show Tax And Total Per Line Item Report - By default, the ShowTaxAndTotalPerLineItemReport option is set to False ("F").  <<<<
