Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Hi this is Rick. I'm a CPA with 25 years experience. Mexico adds a 16% tax to practically all goods and services, but usually it is included in the price quoted. In your case, it was not. Then it becomes a legal question as to whether their quote was binding. The tax definitely needs to be paid, but you have a valid dispute with the rigging company.
