Not sure what others do. When you buy online (as with our site) you pay no
tax if you are outside Colorado. If you are in the UK, and buy from us, you
have to take care of the VAT on your end. We have nothing to do with that.
We just ship the goods and you get to wrestle with customs. I always tell
folks if they are going to buy from us, if they are outside the U.S., to
find out exactly what customs charges on their end will apply, so that there
are no unpleasant surprises.

So our price is what you pay, period. Whatever quote I give you, that's what
you'll pay to me, for goods and shipping. What you pay to customs is another

Sorry Kit, I didn't explain myself well, I know about discount
negotiation :) I was really interested to know if in any country other
than USA and Canada were are normally prices listed without tax etc.
It always irritates the hell out of me when in the USA that I do not
know what I will pay until the till calculates all the extras and adds
Any other country does that?
