I have purchased a dell laptop few months back online in Germany. Now, I am leaving germany permanently and will settle down in India. It is written in Frankfurt airport website that "If you are leaving the European Union and live outside it, you are entitled to refund on the value-added tax paid on all merchandise purchased within the EU." So, can I claim for the tax return for my laptop in the airport although it was purchased online and already used for few months Please let me know.

You should be able to claim the Sales Tax back as you are not consuming the item in Germany. however that is for tourists who purchase goods whilst visiting a country for traveling so won't apply to you if you have been living and working in Germany.
