Hello,

Thanks for sharing your situation with us.

According to some Border Information Services (BIS) representatives, if the officer is not satisfied or convinced that it was to have originally been included on a Goods to Follow list, then you may be subject to the tax and duty.

You may have to explain to the officer this situation you have explained to us as to why it was not submitted.

If the officer is not satisfied, you will have to pay 13% tax and 9% duty on the used value.

We suggest that it is best that you contact a Border Information Services (BIS) representative directly for some information on your specific situation.

I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have further questions and if there is any follow up to your question/situation.
