I rented a car from Sixt in Italy, and it received a minor scratch while parked on a street. The rental car insurance provided by my credit card (MasterCard) covered the damage, but per their policy, they do not pay for VAT fees.
Now, Sixt is asking me to pay the VAT charges for the damages ($107 USD).
Do I have to pay this? Being a U.S. citizen, can I get reimbursed for this VAT?
