This operation returns a unique tax record given a city, state and tax type. It returns the exact same output as the previous operations. 


This operation is a replacement for GetTaxInfoByCityCountyState if county information is not present. It would be good to use if only city and state are available but has a higher likelihood than any other operation of returning multiple records. If more precise information is available, such as zip code it would be recommended to use that. DO NOT USE this operation for Minnesota rates. Minnesota tracks rates by zip code and city and county rates might be different for each city/county based on the zip code.
