Spanish term or phrase: I.V.A.
The whole sentence is:
"El EQUIPO SERA FACTURADO POR UN VALOR DE $39829.-CON I.V.A. INCLUIDO."
Robert R. Anderson
English translation:Sales Tax
Explanation:
Because of the use of the $ sign, I realize that it is possible that the original document is from Latin America. If this is the case, and you are translating it for a north American audience, I would recommend the use of the term "Sales Tax" or simply, "Tax" to simplify matters and for clarity.

e.g. "including tax" or "with tax included"

Thanks for a good, complete answer. I thought it must have something to do with "valor añadido,"
which I have seen, as well as "valor agregado," but stupid me!--the "I" didn't suggest "impuestos."
Yes it's for an American audience. Thanks again. It's been a long day.

VAT


Explanation:
The IVA is the Spanish acronym for VAT, or value added tax, which is a tax used primarily in Europe. It is included in the price of the item which one is purchasing. I think it's about 17 or 18%, usually.

You selected the wrong answer.


Explanation:
It's not just a sales tax. I agree with those who suggested that IVA means Impusto al valor agregado. The way this sales tax is calculated makes a difference. It's not a straight percentage like in the US.
