Turbine is part of a huge company called Time Warner with facilities all over the world. As such Turbine adds and remits local sales for many countries.
The sales tax situation is a major issue for local, county, state and national government all over the world. A lot of companies choose not to collect or remit the taxes hoping that they will not get caught or punished. Smaller companies hope to be ignored because they are too small to be noticed and or picked on. Larger companies especially if they have no employees or a physical presence hope to be ignored because there is nothing for the national government to sink their claws into. It is really to intercept digital sales or go after the banks that are handling the money transfers.
