re: "I don't even pay taxes when buying online out of state."
don't say that too loud. The IRS (actually state-tax folks) would love to speak with you (You're supposed to calculate the amount of items purchased "outside of your state, and then volunteer that figure to them so that you owe your state, its state tax).
I have a feeling that most people also ignore this...
VAT: I don't believe they're supposed to charge VAT if the vendor is shipping OUTSIDE of the EU (European Community).
