As I understand it trsmom, one can bring back $800.00 per person from Europe to the USA without having to pay taxes.

The exemption is 800.00 per person so if you are by yourself or with a friend it's 800.00. If you are with family..husband maybe? then you get 1600.00...800 for each of you.

When I came back from Paris last Nov. I declared everything, had it listed and the amount and I was at a little over 1100.00. They just waived me through...I was very happy but shocked!!!! I think the duty over the 800.00 is about 10% so maybe it wasn't worth their time for the 30 bucks.

The trip before that when the exemption was only 400.00 I did have to pay 16.00 in duty.

crefloors,

I was surprised the same way the first time I came back with a bunch of bottles of brandy and wine. I listed them and expected to pay duty, but they just looked and sent me on.

I have since heard of a great many people having the same experience with wine, and no one ever paying duty on alcohol they bring back by airplane.

Also, some things are exempt, like toys, some artwork, and loose stones. I'm sure there are more.
