US Customs is charging a 5.21% duty on Combustion basses imported into the US.

US Customers who receive Combustions shipped from Canada will get a bill from FedEx for duty.

Customers buying from US retailers will will not see this tax as the dealer will be the one paying, however since this is a new development (for us), anyone who was quoted a price by a dealer prior to today will have to allow the dealer to add the cost of the tax to their quote. As of today we are adjusting our pricing structure to factor this in.

Early in the Combustion development a representative from US Customs told me that due to the high percentage of Canadian and US components, Combustions would be allowed into the US duty free under NAFTA. This has changed and we are no longer able to secure this ruling.

I don't know about the U.S., but I know FedEx sends a bill about 5 weeks later and UPS charges on delivery in Canada.

Mine was the first one shipped out of Canada. Did I get away duty-free?

How does one pay the charge? Do they bill you when they show up at your front door with the instrument?
