I live on the other side of the pond but I guess for you is just the same as for us when we order from the USA.
We have to pay customs taxes and VAT (MK shop prices include VAT already) plus a standard fee to the customs for processing the import.
This basically cuts most of the convenience for the lower US prices (example: amazon.com price for intel I7 860 = 280$ on amazon.de 272,47 EUR = 367$)

I don't think the VAT applies, but the only people who can definitively answer your question are the people who run the shop. Have you asked them? If you asked them, but didn't get a reply, do you still want to buy from them?
There's also a great MK shop in Canada, and a new MK shop in the US. Their prices are a bit higher than the German shop if the VAT is removed.

Why not buy it from North America, and not worry about the VAT stuff.
You can get the same Octo Kit from NG Hobbies in Canada:

I didn't get taxed when I bought my MK from Germany shop. However, they charge paypal fee, plus an unfavorable exchange rate through paypal. When you add shipping charges to all of these fees, it almost makes sense to buy them in the US.
