Value added tax - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1542 words)
VAT is an indirect tax, in that the tax is collected from someone other than the person who actually bears the cost of the tax.
VAT was invented by Maurice Lauré, joint director of the French tax authority, the Direction générale des impôts, as taxe sur la valeur ajoutée (TVA in French) in the 1950s.
VAT differs from a conventional sales tax in that VAT is levied on every business as a fraction of the price of each taxable sale they make, but they are in turn reimbursed VAT on their purchases, so the VAT is applied to the value added to the goods at each stage of production.
Brain-in-a-vat - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (909 words)
