US customs declaration question

Jump to last reply

Hi all, I am a US citizen who flew out of Chicago international terminal 5 to Indonesia. I realized I had not brought my watch so I picked up 2 watches in the Swatch duty free store, but paid 9.25% sales tax and carried the watches right out of store (they weren't delivered to the plane or anything like that). Now I am returning to US with the watches I purchased before leaving. I am already over my allowance, but am unsure whether or not I need to declare them especially since I already paid US sales tax on them.
Any help Quickly would be appreciated- I begin flights back to US in 12 hours.
Thanx again valued community.
Warm regards- David
