Indeed, I'm just assuming such a law exists, but obviously I'll be damn pleased if one does not, as will billions of others!
I wasn't joking, I will demand a VAT refund for every US-based transaction I ever made if I were ever to find out that there are no legal grounds for a US-based business charging me VAT.
Such practices would be theft by deception, surely, if they were not law. Anyway, I'm no expert on this stuff (far from it). I absolutely despise "Government" to the maximum extent that is humanly possible, and have no interest in legalese, I find it all incredibly depressing and boring to be honest.
So if Urklang doesn't need to charge VAT, that's great, but unfortunately, I think he does.
