  1. Hi,

    i was just wondering if there are any custom duties or taxes etc if i send a leather handbag insured and valued at around $900?

    The bag is coming from Australia to the US. Iwould send it as a gift.

    TIA:heart:
     
  2. $900 item to US will not attract any tax. I don't know the exact tax-free threshold but up to US$1250ish is definitely ok :yes:
     
  3. Thank you for your help :smile:
     
  4. ^^^ That is incorrect information, it will absolutely attract customs charges
     
  5. I had a balenciaga bag shipped from Australia to US and did not pay any taxes. Bag was insured for $1100.
