Just a thought.. i was looking on ebay for a Gibson Firebird when i came across a BIN for $1500, it was listed as new, unplayed, if he exports it to the UK, do i still pay the tax which is included in his $1500 BIN price?? or am i US tax exempt but pay the UK tax, or as i think the answer is going to be, do i pay Tax twice??
Silly question when you think about it, you pay tax on the shipping twice, so why not on the product.
