Not sure about using E-certs to pay for taxes; however the last time I paid for the taxes in August 2015 on an award ticket ($11.00) with the AMEX platinum it was reimbursed.

I'm not sure, but I believe I've purchased a ~$130 + taxes/fees one-way in the past that was fully paid for using three eCerts, and if so, that indicates it would work. Also, because taxes/fees are reimbursed when they pass along to the Amex card, they could be credited that way if not covered by the eCert. Probably best to try and report back.

If I only have $25 of reimbursement left available, can I still buy the $50 ecert and get $25 refunded?

I don't know if this counts towards the $200 for 2016, but I purchased an airfare ticket one way for $98.74 and just paid with The Amex Business Plat. card and it got fully reimbursed today.

Please see the second to last bullet point in the "Primer" section of the Wiki. Yes, remainders will be refunded up to the point of your limit.

Is it safe to do 2016 yet if we've already done 2015?

Any single eCert above $50.00 has not normally been reimbursed. Multiple $50.00 eCerts in the same transaction have been reimbursed.
