Just like the different taxes that you owe, so are American regulations concerning VAT divergent from European norms. There is no such thing as VAT in the US, but sales tax does exist. This a sales tax that a seller levies on consumers and businesses. Thus, a totally different set of regulations exists than in the Netherlands or Europe. Sales tax is a state tax and its amount differs per state. In the US, the extent of the tax per state doesn’t just differ according to the percentage rate. It also depends on whether the tax is levied on a particular product or not. Since there is no VAT levied in America and the sales tax can vary from state to state, it is sensible to work with an experienced tax consultant. You will be explained why VAT is not levied and how you can deal with sales tax. At Duijn Tax you are at the right address for personal advice you can trust.
