how many euro was the miner and the shipping?

your vat is over 15%

so if you paid under 1600 euro that tax is high

so what did it cost?

I mine alt coins with https://simplemining.net...
I see BTC as the super highway and alt coins as taxis and trucks needed to move transactions.

You need to be honest and pay the French value-additional tax, a.k.a. VAT.
There is no other legal way.
All other methods are illegal in a way or another.
For you or the seller (Bitmain), depending on the way.
The hard taxation is the painful price we European miners pay..

In case that the goods are already at Fedex which are doing the import for you its very unlikely that you can change anything about the price for VAT mark-up.

If the VAT was calculated wrong you can basically only provide the payment receipt from Bitmain and ask them to recheck.

15%? That is cheap... *cries in third world country* In my country VAT is 20% and you need to pay additional 10% something called "custom tax" fucked them! And when you take in count everything i need to pay around 600$ around 2k$ worth package...

There is other way what my friend used with his friend from USA... But Bitmain wouldn't do that.. They wouldn't risk getting import banned in certain country... Anyways it goes like this..


Friend from USA sent him 13 miners... he has scratched cases A LOT, and pour some dust on it, so it looks like old used gear... he only paid... HERE IT COMES.... 13$ VAT....yea..

Genius, great way but it will be better if we keep some "secrets" and don't write everything publickly. Btw sometimes bitmain's miners are really full of dust.
OP it was possible to reduce tax while it was sent but now I have no idea why even do you think about that. It's very late and 100% impossible to avoid tax. But in future consider your loss and act differently, I can't say anything more.
