No place in Google Checkout to set international tax rates. Do we owe? How to Pay?

 I'm based in the US and if I go into my google checkout merchant
account and go into tax settings, there are only options for setting
tax rates for US states. Aren't we supposed to charge VAT taxes if we
sell ( via Android Market/Google Checkout) internationally??

Not that I would know how to actually pay those countries their taxes.

Do I in fact owe taxes to other countries if I'm in the US and selling
software (apps) say to the UK? My company has physical presence in
only one US state. For sales to US customers that typically means I
only have to charge (the customer) and pay (the state) sales tax when
the "shipping address" of the customer is in the same state that my
company has a presence in.

But how is it supposed to work for sales from US to other countries,
and where do we set this up in Google Checkout and how (if in fact we
owe those countries their tax money) do we actually go about paying

Hello all,

yes it looks like there's a bug in the emulator where it can't deal with
those characters in the path.

To fix this you can override the location where all the android tools look
for those files.

create a system wide environment variable called ANDROID_SDK_HOME and
containing a path that doesn't include those non ascci char.
The android tools will create a ".android" folder in it, and the emulator
will access it too.

We'll see about fixing the emulator too.
