VAT Advice

July 25, 1993

I would like to alert shoppers traveling to the Republic of Ireland to a nuance in retrieving VATs (value added taxes). The forms were available everywhere I shopped on my recent trip. I saved all receipts, filling out a form for each shop visited. In small print on the forms, it mentioned a service charge. What it did not spell out is that the charge is for each receipt. After all was totaled at Shannon Airport, I was handed about $3. Had I known, I would have done more shopping at fewer places. Or better yet, bought everything at the Shannon duty-free shop.
