Re: EU tax refund while driving

If you want to get the VAT back, at this point, from Zurich, the easiest thing to do is probably to drive to the closest EU border bringing the goods (important), German border likely, get into Germany and drive out, while getting your forms stamped.
First, this is actually illegal and is tax and duty fraud. Second, if you do it do not use the same crossings. Specially do not drive in, get the stamp, and then immediately out. Third, they might check the date on the receipt and ask you where the heck you have been between time of purchase and getting the stamp so late. Forth, people got caught and got burned. Fraudster discretion advised, smuggle responsibly.
