Have you ever tried to import or export an item from the country where you are or where you'd like to sell it? Well, there's probably a tax placed upon your product in the country where, ultimately, that product is going to be sold. It, while waiting payment for that tax, the governments of those countries typically hold your goods as, they call it payment, I call it ransom. But, and anyway, you gotta pay the tax.
