If you are traveling to Mexico for business or pleasure, this is something you ought to know about…there are a number of establishments all over Mexico that participate in the Tax Back program.
In order to get your taxes back, all you need is an official receipt (invoice) from the retailer. You must spend a minimum of $1,200 MXN pesos (a little under $100 USD) to qualify. Once you get to the airport, visit the Tax Back office with your receipts and they will process your refund the amount you paid in VAT (16% in the interior and 11% in Baja and border regions) minus a processing fee. The refunds typically take 40 days to be credited to your credit card and you can track the status of the refund on their website.
