Subject Re: Is Apache Open Office good for sales tax service spreadsheets?

Depends on how much data you intend to acquire. For a small shop, using AOO would be feasible.
But as Tom Goldie said below, a database should be employed if you're acquiring lots of data.
Spreadsheets do well on small data sets, but beyond a certain point they get unwieldly, then
become unusable. You've got only 65,534 rows (records) to work with in a spreadsheet; many
more records are possible in a database.

or checks so no need for keeping track of bank account or credit card numbers.
