Kindle fire offer : why do I have to pay taxes ?

Hi, As described here : https://developer.amazon.com/post/Tx3PAVYPJ1VAM8L/Hundreds-of-Developers-will-Receive-Kindle-Fire-HD-Devices-from-the-Amazon-Mobil.html "For international developers, where the Kindle Fire HDX was not yet available to ship, [b]we are covering the taxes and import duty[/b] on the Kindle Fire HD." So why do I have to pay taxes ? (30€) Is there something to do to have a refund ? Best regards,

I don't get why they ship from the US anyway. I mean it's not like Amazon is the largest online retailer with hundreds of warehouses around the globe and in almost every (developed) country, right…
