Anyone know what the import tax into the US is?  I'm considering buying some used gear from someone in the UK and would like to know what to expect to pay.  Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,

Brad

Hi Brad,

not an expert but Id say it depends what type of equipment.

For instance mechanical goods would genereally be much less than electrical or elsectronic equipment

There are different rates of taxation for all goods they ll be listed somewhere

All best

Joe

I found this website which seems legit: http://www.dutycalculator.com/  It says steadicam has an import duty rate of 2.5%.  Does this sound accurate to anyone who's done this before?

If it's items made in the US, there should be no duty to bring stuff "home".
