    There is a stark contrast between the high official praise paid to the principle of mutual recognition as "the cornerstone of the Single Market" (European Commission 1999:2) and the low satisfaction with the principle’s actual operation on the ground. Many studies have observed that mutual recognition contributes only modestly to the removal of regulatory barriers in the Single Market and investigate why that is (see e.g. Nicolaidis 1993; Pelkmans 2003; Schmidt 2003; Schmidt 2004). The focus of this study is different. It asks why mutual recognition is not used at all for the removal of tax barriers. A comparison between the regulation and taxation of goods is used to identify possible answers. Why is mutual recognition applied to product regulations but not to VAT?
