Well for the rest of us that will go on living in the real world this is a huge tax that must never see the light of day.
Have used Amazon UK from time to time and over here are exempt from the VAT. Shipping isn’t that much either and we actually saved on some purchases. May be doing this more often in future it seems
The “real world” is in trouble because this tax has not seen the light of day. If you can’t compete on a level playing field and collect sales tax like a local store than don’t do business in that state, have you never heard of aiding and abetting dishonesty?
