This does not exist in 4.6, and is not going to exist in 4.7. The
problem is that tax just changes gross, so it really can't be tracked. 

what is going to happen in 4.7 is there is going to be an area for
miscellaneous transactions so that any kind or additional transaction
can be tracked.

This will help with the problem of passing tax to paypal.

This is not the area to be asking specific E-Commerce questions.

The best place is most likely in the E-Commerce project. There are a lot
of people who are following development and helping other people.
