What is the upper limit on the value of good you can import from the US before you incur import tax?

Anyone know?

I'm contemplating buying some yarn from the states (can't get it here), but trying to find out how much I can buy without getting stung.

Would the value include the cost of shipping as well, or is that not included in the calculation?

Thanks matnan - argh, so it's complicated, and I've no way of working out exactly how much I might need to pay, then hmm

I think it's going up later in the year - someone on Rav told me...from about $12 to $80 (these numbers may be wrong!)

I am in the states, and am happy to mail it to you to avoid taxes!

Ah I'm glad you said that bundle, dh thought it was $80!

Mananny, that's really kind of you! However I think that even if you sent it as a "gift" I could still get stung for taxes. If it is worthwhile I might do it a lot.

Bundle - it's the Tahki cotton - I am in LURVE wink
