Taxes seem to only be applied to shipping, not products

I've set up my products and shipping charges; verified tax rate; and am not including tax in prices.  When I test it out I find that tax is only applied to shipping.  When I have a free product plus shipping charge, tax is charged.  When I have product charge and free shipping, no tax is charged.  Do I have something setup wrong?  Has anyone else noticed this?

where does the tax amount reflect?

once the tax setting is done for the respective countries. And if I have ticked automatically charge taxes. Where does this reflect? Is it added to the selling price I have manually corrected on the product page? How will I know what is the basic price charged and how much is the tax charged? what does the compare price mean?
