MPF Tax & Non Paying Bidders

I haven't posted any items since the new tax collection policy went into place - I was wondering how the tax collection works for non-paying bidders?

As I understand it, sellers not using immediate checkout will have to collect the tax from buyers - GB calculates the tax based on the buyer's ship to address and then adds it to the invoice total. The amount of tax collected by a seller will be later charged to their card on file.

But what if the buyer never pays? Is the tax automatically refunded or removed from the balance after filing a non-paying bidder report and relisting the item with a credit?

Anyone have any experience with this?
