I was in NY recently,about 3 weeks ago and purchased a Macbook Pro from the Apple Store. I was unaware that I could claim a tax refund at the airport so didn't claim it as yet.
I do have my receipt and will be in NY in 6 weeks again .
My question is, if I go back to the Apple store with my receipt and passport will they be able to stamp it for a refund and can I claim it at the airport on my return to my home country a week later end September? Also do I need to have that laptop with me at the time?
