I have a Zapier action where if I star a message on Slack, it sends that message via OmniSync email to Omnifocus. I was looking at the documentation on Omnifocus’ TaskPaper support, and saw that you can add @(tag_name), but can’t get that to work on my Zapier automation. Does anyone know if there’s a way to get Omnifocus to interpret tags when the task is sent via email?

OmniFocus doesn’t have a built-in mechanism for extracting information such as tags from tasks that have been emailed into OmniFocus.
Years ago, @joebuhlig shared the OmniFocus Auto-Parser AppleScript. As the name implies, it can be used to parse items in the inbox. I haven’t tested this AppleScript with recent versions of OmniFocus, so I’m not sure if it still works.
It looks like @rosemaryjayne created something similar in recent years. You’ll find more information in this thread.
