Do I still need to pay customs duty if I declare goods as gift?
Even though you declare goods as gift, the gift is also dutiable in certain cases. For example,gift worth up to $100 may be sent, free of duty and tax, to friends and relatives in United States, as long as the same person does not receive more than $ 100 worth of gifts in a single day. In other word, if any item is worth more than the $100 gift allowance, the entire package will be dutiable. If you have no idea for how to declare is proper, please contact destination customs to learn more.
