Note for non-US individuals: If Google determines your account is outside the US, EU member countries, and select other countries, it will show an extremely high price to remove ads, please do not buy an in-app purchase at a very high rate. Only the US and countries in which Google takes care of VAT on behalf of the developer have lower prices to remove ads. The purpose of the high price for some countries is to discourage purchases while also allowing individuals from other countries to download and use the app. Outside the automated refund window provided by Google, you will not be refunded if you make a purchase at one of those very high prices. Purchases are not wanted from Google accounts tied to those countries as the developer may be responsible for filing taxes in the purchaser's country.
