Hi, just to confirm....since you are trying to reach up into the parent for data, have you considered using forumla fields?
You may try the below code. Here abc__c is the checkbox field in quote line item object.

trigger quotetax on Quote (after update) {   
    set<id> ids=new set<id>();
    for(quote q:trigger.new){
    map<id,quote> oldquote=new map<id,quote>();
    for(quote qold:trigger.old){
    map<id,list<quotelineitem>> qlimap=new map<id,list<quotelineitem>>();
    list<quotelineitem> qli=[select id,abc__c,quoteid from quotelineitem where quoteid=:ids];
    for(quotelineitem qli2:qli){
    system.debug('qlimap size = '+qlimap.size());
      system.debug('qlimap CONTENTS = '+qlimap);
    list<quotelineitem> qli4=new list<quotelineitem>();
    for(quote q2:trigger.new){
        quote b=oldquote.get(q2.id);
        decimal c=b.tax;
           system.debug('Tax value Changed');
         list<quotelineitem> qli3=qlimap.get(q2.Id);          
           for(quotelineitem qli5:qli3){
            system.debug('Tax value NOT changed');
    system.debug('size of quote line items = '+qli4.size());
    update qli4;

Mark this answer as the best answer if it resolved your requirement.

                 IN Parent I have the fields city__c,Street__c,tax__c may i know where can i include city-_c,Street__c..could you update your trigger.
Are you checking for changes on these fields? if yes, then you need to add the condition on the line 'if(q2.Tax!=c)' . Change this line as
if(q2.Tax!=c || q2.city__c!=b.city__c || q2.street__c!=b.street__c). Hope this helps
