Quick question about taxes.
I just read in my accounting textbook that here in Germany, we don't have to pay value-added tax on apartments, houses or other rented real estate.
Does it work like that in America too, and does it apply to hotel rooms too? Because when i went to America once, i had to pay 10% taxes on the price of the hotel room. Did i get scammed?

We don't have VAT.

We have sales tax, which is a tax on products, but not services. In some places, groceries are tax free.

Hotels are often subject to special taxes. You didn't get scammed.

Holy shit, people have to pay taxes on groceries? Where? That's some grade-A bullshit. I've lived in Arizona my whole life and have never had to pay tax on food. What the fuck.

Thanks. Wouldn't have surprised me if they tried to scam me, though. After I left the hotel, they "forgot" to pay me back my deposit, and they ignored my emails. I had to have a friend who lives in America go in and complain in person lol

If you are asking if you can go to the USA for 1 month, and find a job during that time so you can come back later to live there with a work visum, then yes. It is very hard.
Employers will be reluctant to hire a foreigner because it takes so long for the visum to get approved. If he hires a local, he can start working immediately. If you don't have a college/uni degree, you shouldn't even try either.

But I'm quite sure one can work without any paperwork, huh? Then after a month or two in, you can explain your situatuon and ask employer for visa assistance.

If you are hardworking I guess he'll help.

Have a college degree but unrelated one, I'm really good at webdev tho
