Polish judges from the Constitutional Tribunal claims that the rule of “tax neutrality” that rejects different taxes on the same product may be applicable on the different VAT-levels of printed books (5%) and ebooks (23%) in Poland. The Polish Constitutional Tribunal thereby has asked this case to be interpreted by the European Court of Justice. France and Luxembourg has already implemented lower taxes on ebooks, but in March EU claimed that an eBook was a service not a product and the countries was demanded to reset the VAT-level. Now Poland put up a new fight to solve this issue. Source: Radio Poland
