An update to my situation.... I finally got the order total to display correctly. it is actually adding in the shipping tax now and including it in the order total but it is still not reflected on the local tax rate line in checkout... that line only displays the tax of the subtotal.

$order->info['shipping_tax'] += $shipping_tax;
and removed the "+" sign from the last line so it reads as:
i hope that + sign wasnt important... all i know is that removing it made my order total correct.
$order->info['shipping_tax'] = $shipping_tax;
unfortunately, i still cant figure out how to get the shipping tax to be reflected in the local tax rate.
