    HI,

    Does anyone know if the new 25% tariffs are going to impact personal imports such as purchases from Aliexpress?

    If so how will the tariff be collected? I know in Europe that UPS/Fedex etc. act as an agent for the govt. and collect the fees (along with an admin fee) before they will deliver.

    Thanks,
    K.

    Hi Kahuna,

    There is a list of items, I have not yet heard of any CCTV / IP cameras on it.
    Trump is slapping tariffs on $50 billion worth of Chinese goods — here's the full list of products that will get hit

    So I would not worry at this time on it. ( w/re to 25% on CCTV equipment )

    Generally a tariff is imposed on a large scale import.

    I guess it's no longer a sales tax. It's a purchase tax.

    It’s a double tax, because I paid tax when I earned the money I used to buy it.

    Buy something too expensive and you'll never be done paying the tax on it.

    All other taxes are a double tax. But that's life U.S.

    It could be worse. Live in Canada.
