tax rate preference

See attached.  The tax rate where I am is 6.85, but I can't get that to show in the tax pull down. It turns it in to 6.8

Still valid, adding Jonathan as the 'tax expert'.

This is not fixed by the tax rewrite work (bug 12825).
But it will be very easy to do when all patches will be pushed.

As discussed on bug 14541, we shouldn't force the tax rate to *any* arbitrary precision. I just came across a library with a tax right of something like 4.3655 percent!

With 4.3655, it would be 0.043655 in DB, but as we store only 4 decimal it will be truncated to 0.0436
We would need to update the DB structure to support such precision.
