I had the same problem and finally figured it out. Here's what you do:

Press C-CE twice
Press +TAX (Rate set)
Key in your new tax rate as an integer (e.g. 5)
Press +Tax (Rate set) again
Press C-CE

Then you're ready to calculate with the new rate!

Now what's the GT button for?

### NEED TO SET TAX RATE

Solution #1 has it backward..
(tax rate), STR, TAX+ (or TAX-)
Example- San Francisco sales tax = 9.5% you enter 9.5, STR, TAX+.
now it functions as (amount entered) plus tax. Example- find the total with tax for a purchase of \$14.99 14.99, TAX+ Calculator will show 16.41

### Set Tax Rate

First clear all w/ ON/AC.
Enter the tax rate desired eg. 7 for 7% (can you tell I'm in PA)
Press RATE then TAX+
Press C/CE.
The next time you use TAX+ it will calculate and add the value that you set.
Do the same for TAX-, you can use a different value for each as they are separate memories.
