How do I use cities to calculate sales tax?

I have been trying for the last two days to set up magento for the tax laws here in South Carolina. I have contacted the states Dept of Revenue, and they informed me that it’s impossible to properly calculate sales tax based on zip code.. She literally laughed when I told her what i was trying to do and wished me luck :/. Many of the zip codes here are shared by multiple counties/cities most with differing tax rates, and the sales tax has to be calculated based on the place where possession takes place ie. the the shipping address.

I looked through magento connect and I saw accurate tax and tax by city but neither seem to compatible with 1.4. Any ideas?
