EU (France) Taxes TVA of Glowforge Pro Importation - Unlock Delivery

Hello everyone, for information on taxes (customs fees) in Europe (France), I’m French and just bought a machine GlowforgePro. I am very impatient to receive it but first of all, I have to pay the VAT of 20% to the French customs, which represents a supplement of 1618,67 $ or 1454euros, to unlock the delivery … it is the Yin and the Yang of the economic world …
Hoping to have brought a drop of water in the field of possibilities, cordially,
Nicolas DENOI
