Tax is applied to untaxable products, even in the wrong country (1.4.0)

I have the country for tax set in the admin to “Australia” however when I do a test purchase to california, sales tax is applied.  I changed “taxable status” of all products to “Not taxable”, emptied my cart, logged out, refreshed all caches, flushed the magento cache, flushed the cache storage, logged back in and added the product, on checkout tax is again applied.

This would seem entirely impossible given the settings.

Surely I am doing something wrong to “rid” the system of previous memory of settings, and magento is just remembering the old information when calculating tax (and perhaps my other posted question on shipping)?
