You can only show price together with tax or without tax. There is no way to show both.
I will post simple code update sometime later today to allow this.

Some brain storm !

I check this out, and I we can add code to show price before tax in case tax is included in the price.
Because AbanteCart has more features than Opencart, there are few things we need to consider.

1. I do not think it make sense to show price before tax in product listing. Comments?

2. In product details page, base price can be shown before tax, but there is a challenge for product options.
It will be confusing if all option will be shown with before tax (not clean UI)

How about showing only total price (after discounts and options) with tax and before tax ?

This sounds like a best solution. I think we need a setting to enable/disable price before tax. This will work together with price with tax setting.

Possibly, stupid question. Why would someone need to show price without tax?

signworks: Is this some regional requirement. In US, requirement to show tax on total.

In my opinion, this would bother/distract customers.
Mentioning on the site that price include x% tax is much better I think.

it would even help even if a product price could say next to it Plus VAT

example :-£100 plus vat
instead of just|:-  £100

can this be added ?

Here's another viewpoint on this:

AbanteCart allows for prices to be show with or without taxes as a default -  the issue with this is how to correctly display pricing to a wide audience of customers -  not everyone is within the same taxing jurisdictions.  If customers are NOT logged into an account,  the system address is used for display in most cases. 

If a UK based store owner wants to show pricing with taxes added to a customers that is not logged into their account  they could simply make a notification on the website pages (block maybe)  that states prices shown include UK Vat rates.  The mini-cart and the checkout pages itemize the product pricing and the taxation as line items  (which I believe is the requirement for VAT taxes in order to get proper credit for any taxes paid).

I would suggest the core Devs to keep in mind that AbanteCart needs to serve a wide range of AbanteCart sites which serve up a wide geographical location of site customers.   Narrowing the scope of presentation for a small or limited number of site users should be a customized coding solution  IMO.   

We have some experience gained over the last 3 years of using AbanteCart and interacting with site owners in several countries and this has never been an issue. 

Just my two cents

Thank you Lee for bring this up.  I know about supporting broader scope of geographical regions.
I think it makes sense to mention about tax included in the price.

Something like this:
$33.33 Inc Tax
 
For UK, text can be changed to "Inc VAT"

I want to find out how I can put taxes in such a way that we have the following situation:
Price                          =   100.00
Customes duty (15%) =     15.00
Sub-total                     = 115.00
VAT (16%) on Subtotal =   18.40
Total price to client      = 133.40
