Ø Worldwide, this sales tax is between 16% and 25%, depending on the country. Ø This tax is used for social benefits for residents in each country, and therefore reimbursed to interna.onal tourists who do not live there, and take the products home to their own country. Ø MONEYBACK is the tax refund company leader in Mexico.
4 How was this ini.ated? Ø During the 80 s, in order to boost tourism, some European Countries explored various op.ons.
