16824Re: (Slightly OT) US Import Taxes from Taiwan
- Dec 1 1:54 PMDon't confuse brokerage fees with duty or import tax. In canada FedEx
charges a fairly substantial brokerage fee to bring items into Canada
from the US. With USPS no brokerage fees but a 5.00 handleing fee
from Canada post. GST is payable on all purchases and is added by
Canada Post but thats not an import tax.
