I’m in the Immigration line at the Zia International Airport in Bangladesh, waiting. Out of boredom, out of curiosity, I start reading the list of taxable vs. tax fee goods. Some of the more interesting items:
Electric Sewing Machines
Ovens – gas and microwave
Candelabrums (tax assessed on the number of points)
Are these things that people usually bring with them on a plane? Curious.
Manual Sewing Machines
Can’t quite figure out the logic behind the lists, but then again, since I’m not carrying any of said items, it probably doesn’t matter.
