Product Inc VAT + Non UE customer = VAT problem (Tax based on shipping address)

Hello everyone!

I came accross a really really strange problem, and I was wondering if anyone had the same issue. I am running magento ver. and all prices are tax included. The tax rate is 19.9% for Europe and 0% for outside EU.

The tax is based on shipping address… All my tests went well until I tried to create a new account, with an address outside EU. The prices on the catalogue were ok, but when I put items in cart, tax were included. Not to mention that it’s working well with old accounts.

So I decided to try new things and I put the tax based on billing address in the admin and now it’s working well…

Does anyone know what could be the reason of this problem?

Best regards,
