Import taxes are a big problem for those who buy in China. A lot of people don't know that and ends up being surprised by collection. The tax rate in Brazil is 60% of the total of merchandise, including the freight.
But not all orders are taxed by the IRS. Very commonly there is no charge and you receive the product in your home without the hassle. In this text you you won't find any way to receive your purchases without paying taxes, because it does not exist. Any order has chance to be taxed.
A big mistake is to think that orders up to $ $ are tax free in fact, the law exempts only cases where the sender and recipient are individuals, What is called “gift” postal package Declaration, IE, a gift sent by a person abroad for you here in Brazil.
The figure below shows the Customs postal Declaration in any package sent from Hong Kong or China. Normally this is the tag (or printing), populated by Chinese site, the recipe is based on issuing the payment of taxes. Must be present the value of the goods (8 dollars in this case), the product (only suitable for “Electronics”) and weight (0.3Kg). Note that the field “Gift” It is not marked.
Only within the agency you will know the correct value to be paid. Of course you already imagine being anything close to 60% the price of goods, but the problem is that the Chinese websites always put an absurdly low value on the customs declaration form (first photo). Even in the case of tablets or phones often statement is nothing but 20 or 30 U.S. dollars, and if it does the recipe arbitrate a value more appropriate for the package and for the tax due.
What to do so if the tax charged is greater than the due. There are three possibilities: you pay anyway to receive logo merchandise, you refuse the package and he will return to the Chinese site (so you get your money back) or so you go in with a request for review.
I have to warn you that the review might result in an even higher value and still have to pay the tax with fine. Just do it at your own risk. To request review you will need to fill, at the post office, the form below:
In addition to the form, print the credit card showing the payment, the invoice (request) the Chinese site and own invoice PayPal. Also includes printing and page where the products are being sold (with price). Remember that the more information you have purchase the easier it will be to review and most likely reducing the tax due. Prepare the patient because the review process typically take almost two months, because it includes shipping the product back to the ICDC and back to your city.
The best thing to do is always thinking that the whole product has 60% of taxes. Make this account whenever you make an order in China. If the product is sold in Brazil for less 1,6 times its value in Chinese site buy here. The risk of being taxed there is always, especially in the case of large orders and heavy as tablets, mobiles and laptops. Good luck and happy shopping!
