Default trying to update

Hello all, I have this one record database file used to hold several last used values, I've confirmed validity of the record. I don't get an error so ....? Will someone take look at this feeble attempt and advise?
thanks in advance!
PHP Code:
// error_reporting(0);
error_reporting(E_ALL E_NOTICE); 
mysql_select_db("numbersdb") or die( "Unable to select database"); 
$taxrate $_POST['taxrate']; 
$query="SELECT * FROM numbdata Where id='$id'"
"No listing for taxrate $taxrate .<br />Select another? .<br />";} 
$sql "UPDATE numbdata SET 
    taxrate = '" 
.mysql_real_escape_string($_POST['taxrate']) . "', 
    WHERE taxrate='"
mysql_query($sql) or die(mysql_error());
"Record for taxrate ".$_POST["taxrate"]." has been updated"
