i dunno, ask the dutch government. Usually you only pay sales tax on the products you purchase but maybe you have a different system.
I know I'd be pretty pissed if I paid sales tax on the all the smokes and alcohol I'm not buying.

Just verified here.

In our country, we pay taxes of the media. Software is considered a service, and may be taxed, depending on the place it is acquired - i.e., service taxes are city incomings and vary from one city to other.

The worst part is that our city has one of highest taxes in services.
