Sales taxes in the United States are complicated, to say the least. Generally, there's a state sales tax (there are a handful of states that do not collect a state sales tax), but there could also be a county sales tax, a school district sales tax, a municipal (city) sales tax, or a metropolitan area sales tax. There could even be different sales taxes in different parts of a city. For the purposes of this challenge, however, we're going to focus on just the state sales tax.
Given a U.S. dollar amount greater than zero (accurate to two decimal places) and a state (either the full name or the two-letter abbreviation, your choice, case doesn't matter), and using the below chart of sales tax percentages, output the corresponding state sales tax required to be collected for that particular sale, accurate and truncated to two decimal places. Please specify how your code handles rounding.
Edit: The abbreviation for Washington was listed incorrectly as WS instead of WA. Answers may use either abbreviation, since that was my goof.
