    Why am I charged ICMS in Brazil?

    ICMS is a 25% state sales tax which we are required to charge on Skype purchases made through local Brazilian payment methods, such as Boleto Bancário or any local credit cards, offered by our partner - GT Group.

    Payments using these local methods always need to be made in the local currency, Brazilian Real (BRL).
