6% VAT CHARGE ON EBAY SALES FROM USA?

Recommended Posts

Hi was wondering why a particular seller in America would want to collect a 6% VAT charge of me? Never happened before and how do I know the fella isn't just pocketing the money? Would appreciate some help as I'm starting to feel slightly mugged off! Thanks for looking, Nick.

Looks like he's asking for the local sales tax. Does he know that record would be shipped abroad ?

It does. Have you given him a US address as shipping address?

I have to say I've never ever paid local sales tax via Ebay purchases in the even for records that got shipped to my US address (when I had one) sellers were both private and commercial companies.

Isn't the sales tax only applied for some states, not all? I've noticed several sellers have a small note about tax for certain states.

Cheers Chris and Las.  He knows I'm in the UK and didn't charge me it in the end . It just struck me as odd ??

It's a bit odd. Maybe he was just overworked in the holiday season and charged tax without thinking about if he should or not.
