Don't want to write a bunch of sumif statements

I have a matric table that lists all the states with tax conditions.

for example
             Condition A          Condition B          Condition C
NY                 T                         E                              T
TX                  E                          E                              T

I have a another spreadsheet with all those conditions as headers and line items with various states.

If the item for Condition A is in TX then the item is taxable, if not it is exempt then it's 0.

The issue is that I don't want to write 9 combined if statesments (based on the headers). How can I create a more efficient formula?

My column titles are called Headings and all of my data is called alldata on the matrix spreadsheet.
