Sorry for the confusion more complete info follows:
The exemption limit and amount of tax is also dependent on the country it's coming from. Also, did you actually get charged a customs duty, or did you get charge a fee from the carrier for preparing the import paperwork, or a "Use Tax" from the your State?
If you ship via Fedex & UPS you'll pay US duty & a service fee....the duty is less than average state tax....................but,I've bought watches from Japan & Hong Kong, price points between US$ 250-1000. shipped EMS post, no duty.
