Re: Tax tip Shopping in Germany

As tax refund is a purely voluntary thing the store may have a different, lower time limit. Best to check what is printed on receipt/Ausfuhrschein and as clerk at checkout.
Recent experience in Konstanz:

Ten months after purchase, six different shops. All refunded the VAT despite their quoted limit being six months.

We tried it with seven months too a previous time and that was also OK too.
