Do You Have To Declare Gifts You Bring Back From A Foreign Country

Gifts you bring back for your personal use must be declared, but you may include them in your personal exemption. This includes gifts people gave you while you were out of the country, such as wedding or birthday presents, and gifts you have brought back for others.

Gifts intended for business, promotional, or other commercial purposes may not be included in your duty-free exemption.

Also note that by federal law, alcoholic beverages, tobacco products, and perfume containing alcohol and worth more than $5 retail may not be included in the gift exemption.

Gifts worth up to $100 may be sent, free of duty and tax, to friends and relatives in the United States, as long as the same person does not receive more than $100 worth of gifts in a single day. If the gifts are mailed or shipped from an insular possession, this amount is increased to $200.

Unless returning to the United States from an insular possession, you don't have to declare gifts you sent while you were on your trip, since they won't be accompanying you.

Gifts for more than one person may be shipped in the same package, called a consolidated gift package, if they are individually wrapped and labeled with each recipient's name. Here's how to wrap and label a consolidated gift package.

Be sure to mark the outermost wrapper with the:

* Words "UNSOLICITED GIFT" and the words "CONSOLIDATED GIFT PACKAGE;"

* Total value of the consolidated package;

* Recipients' names and

* Nature and value of the gifts inside. For example, tennis shoes, $50; shirt, $45; toy car, $15.
