Do we need to pay duty and tax on item shipped from hong kong?

Postby daniel77 » Thu Sep 06, 2012 10:11 pm

Hi, I recently ordered something from Ehobbybaseshop, one of the site sponsors. I chose air parcel. It's shipped from hong kong to US.
Now I'm worried they might charge me duties and taxes for it.
Has anyone bought anything from that website before? And will US post office deliver it to my door?

Thanks in advance!

Update: received my order. No duties or taxes needed for importing toys to USA. It works as normal USPS package.
Also, the toy was very well packed, very good job, Ehobbybaseshop! Very good email communication too!
I'd recommend this web store to all collectors.
