Presumably, the same as it costs right now for a permanent key, which (when buying with USD) is $50.

Mike has not announced any plans to change the license pricing.

Is the cost for one year or is it a one time fee?

One time fee. MakeMKV isn't a subscription, like some of the other programs out there.

$50 is 45.59 Euro

So why are we being charged 61.50 Euro when trying to buy it in EU? And don't say taxes... do the americans not have to pay taxes too on the $50?

Sales tax is state-specific in the US.

Mike has told Avangate the price is USD 50. Avangate collects the price in local currency for the purchaser, and also collects things like VAT and other taxes that are required.

The US does not have VAT, or a nationwide sales/use tax. I've seen where VAT can run from as low as 8% to as much as 50%.

I have read about people using VPNs, gift cards bought on US banks, and using US addresses, to purchase software licenses (like MakeMKV) to get the US price, and so that their home governments don't know they bought something so scandalous.
