The largest such company that I know of is Cybersource.  They provide
many sorts of electronic payment services, including tax caluclations.
Over 3,000 businesses use their services, including over half of the
Dow Jones Industrial companies.

Cybersource Tax Calculation:

Working with Cybersource as a developer:

It appears that Cybersource actually integrates the Taxware offerings
in their product.  If you are only looking for tax calculation, it may
be better to go directly to the source, Taxware.

Taxware for e-Commerce  offers Web mall owners and merchants a method
for the automatic calculation of sales/use and international tax for
on-line transactions. The system's functionality encompasses merchant
profile creation, customer address verification, exemption processing,
product taxation, jurisdiction logic, tax calculation, transaction
tracking, nexus administration (physical presence), international
taxation and reporting. To ensure accurate tax jurisdiction, the
system is based on ZIP Code for address verification or VAT
registration and country code, which results in the most reliable
system available.

Also, there is the Sales/Use Tax System, which is the center of
Taxware's product line. It automatically calculates accurate sales,
use and consumer's use taxes and operates as an integral part of a
user's financial system. Unique to the system is the only fully
populated Product Taxability Matrix in the industry. Its Tax Master
File covers all U.S. tax jurisdictions and Canadian provinces and is
kept current with monthly updates. Taxware's other systems interface
with the Sales/Use Tax System, creating a comprehensive yet
customizable solution.

I suggest reviewing the offerings from both Cybersource and Taxware to
determine which will meet your needs, and contacting both companies.
