Tax location is determined by the origin of the last credit card added. This is the location returned by DigitalOcean’s credit card processor for the given card (not the user entered location).
For PayPal users, tax location is determined by the location returned by PayPal for the last payment.
You can change your tax location by adding a payment card with a different location origin or by making a PayPal payment with an updated location.

Because USD is currently the only currency we can accept for payments, all invoices are in USD. We cannot provide invoices in other currencies.
