    The only reference to tax in the documentation (that I can find) is http://www.amember.com/docs/Viewing_Payments.

    The actual tax settings are in the Configuration > Tax Settings page.

    PayPal also lets you set up a tax rate.

    Should the tax be set in aMember's configuration, or in PayPal, or in both?

    Tax should be set in aMember only. It will pass correct tax amount depends on product price when user will be redirected to paypal for payment.

    Will this work for subscriptions? I know with PayPal the ability to calculate taxes would not work with recurring charges, only with one off sales....Rob

    yes this will work with subscriptions, although tax will be added to product price and will not be available as separate line in paypal receipt.
