Hey all... i bought an item from a person who's living part time in the US and France. FedEx just sent me a notice of duty tax that I owe of around $500. I was very surprised b/c i've bought items of much higher value shipped from France before and never had an issue with the tax/customs when using FedEx. Who's responsible for the tax, me or the seller? also, does it matter where it was originally purchased? This is totally new to me and surprising! Please inform me thanks!
