Customs and Taxes

 

  1. Importing Furniture

    • If you purchase furniture from abroad and have it shipped back to the United States, you will be required to fill out an Informal Entry CBP Form 3461.
    • Additional duties may be imposed if the imported furniture is determined to be sold at prices below fair market value or if there are subsidies involved.
  2. Customs Bond

    • When importing furniture, you may need to obtain a customs bond.
    • The cost of a customs bond is calculated based on the amount of taxes and fees applied to the imported products.
  3. Duty-Free Items

    • Certain household effects, including furniture, carpets, paintings, tableware, stereos, linens, and similar items, may be conditionally included and considered duty-free.
  4. Sales and Use Tax

    • Depending on your location, you may be required to collect and remit sales and use tax on the furniture you sell.
    • It is important to understand the specific tax regulations in your jurisdiction and comply with the necessary reporting and payment requirements.
