The one state I dealt with had a central database that was regularly updated. The example you give is one created by law which generally takes time to go into effect. There is plenty of notice when changes occur. FWIW a few years later I was employed as a state sales tax auditor and so I've seen the issue from both sides. For the most part the State wasn't interested in finding any rule to zap the business with. They were more interested that you were doing your best to apply the law correctly and consistently.
