VAT refund on iphone 5S

Taiwan Mobile told me they don’t offer VAT refunds on the iphone 5S. Would other carriers or apple retailers offer it? I’ve heard people getting VAT refunds on ipads and macbooks so i figure iphones wouldnt be any different? Thanks!

You need to make the purchase from an Authorized TRS labelled store. … 972&mp=999

If the store in question hasn’t joined the scheme, then its no-go for refunds.
