Multiple Tax Rates By State and Not Others

We have the following situation here in California.  We need to be able to charge different tax rates based on the customers shipping address in California.  So for instance, if you reside in Los Angeles then the tax rate we need to charge on their shipment is 8.25%.  If you reside in Palm Springs, then we need to charge 7.75%.  If you order products that are food items, we need to be able to not charge tax at all on food items in California.  And finally, if you reside outside of California, we need to charge no tax at all.

Can Magento accommodate all of these nuances?

It was my understanding that it is based on location, not zip code, for California. How did you resolve this?
