That's the problem, it can be anything from 45% to zero. It all depends on the country, what the product is, the amount, and as far as I can tell... what mood the receiving authority is in. For instance, some of my products can fall into a lower tax category. But even if you give them the right code, sometimes they just deny it. Other times they tax nothing. It's a crap shoot. So yeah... Pretty much impossible to tell anybody what it will be. I'm not going to tell somebody $20, and then it ends up $40, because then... guess who is going to get yelled at. And if you tell them the highest possible, they might not buy it.
And there's some countries out there, that are a bit corrupt... and then who the heck knows what they will do.
So yes, I think just playing dumb is best. And probably more honest anyway.
