Thanks David. I had similar thoughts, but from my basic understanding of US tax law, I thought there might be a problem if the items are also priced at $1,000 (or less) in Italy or in the EU. From my limited knowledge based on Edward Green sales, they state prices inclusive of VAT (so Edward Green lowers the price for US buyers then charges shipping). So, I thought my friend might be charged for both Italy VAT and US sales tax, whether or not VAT is actually paid in Italy.
