Special Note, May 2008:

HOPING TO ATTRACT more recession-wary Americans, Mexico in June will begin reimbursing the value-added tax charged on purchases made at stores and businesses throughout the country to tourists who arrive by air and cruise ship. Mexico's Ministry of Tourism said in a statement that starting in June tourists will be able to use kiosks at five major airports -- Mexico City, Cancun, Guadalajara, Los Cabos and Puerto Vallarta -- to reclaim the 15% VAT they've paid on goods totaling at least $115 (1,200 Mexican pesos). In order to qualify for the refund, the purchases must have been made at approved stores and businesses with credit cards or debit cards issued outside of Mexico, or in cash. Tourists must present their passports when making their purchases and obtain a receipt and an official refund form from the approved merchant. The tax credit will apply to shopping, not to purchases on meals and lodging. Visitors will be able to get half of the VAT in Mexican pesos, up to a maximum of $955 (10,000 Mexican pesos). The rest will be credited electronically to visitors' credit cards or bank accounts within 40 days. Starting in 2009, the program will be phased in at other major airports as well as at cruise ports. The more than 21 million tourists who visited Mexico in 2007 spent $13 billion, making tourism the country's third most important source of revenue.
