I’m trying to remove the oil filter cap I have the right tool but even with a lot of torque the cap is not moving I’m going counter-clockwise should I try tapping the ratchet with a hammer. I don’t want to damage the plastic cap. Is this a normal problem?

Counter clockwise is correct. Shouldn’t have to use a tool on the cap to remove it normally but in some cases it is necessary to do so. Might as well use a hammer and smack it. No you do not want to break it, but it has to come off. If you get lucky, it won’t break. If it does, you were going to have to replace it anyway.
