Show tax value amount instead of price incl. tax in front-end
In your configuration screenshot, the prices in \"shopping cart display settings\” are set to be displayed including tax. If I understand you correctly, I think you should set this to \"Excluding Tax\” (for prices and subtotal). Hope this helps.
