    where does the belgian tax come from? you're german so they should apply the german tax rate on it.

    also, we "only" have 21% tax on luxery products (everything besides water & bread ;) ) here in Belgium.

    I believe the changes that recently were made were forcing the tax rate of the location where the buyer or seller is.

    Before that you could buy or sell it for example as citizen of Luxemburg and pay less for the same app as the tax is lower there.

    But I never sold an app so I'm not sure.

    I believe Sorex is right....apparently the buyer is from Belgium and therefore Belgian VAT was applied. These are new tax-rules since 1/1/2015.

    In this case I guess you mean that the final amount is an amount to add to your tax-declaration (income-tax)? Absurd, that this kind of double-taxation exists. I would have expected that Google would declare the (Belgium) tax as a "withholding agent" (ITALIAN: sostituto d'imposta)....

    hmm, you only get 50% of the play store price or what?

    that's indeed a dissapointment.

    You even get much less.
    Do not forget the 30% income tax from Germany. :(
