Depending on what you're ordering, you may well pay much more than 20% in taxes in the US and won't find out until COD is demanded at your doorstep....and your merchandise will be held hostage by a postal carrier until you not only pay the taxes, but "convenience fees" for their tariff processing that may well be applied wrongly.

VAT ends up being substantially simpler and predictable than the disaster area that is import/export in the USA.
