I don't really understand how "duty free" works.
|Quoting StarGoldLHR (Thread starter):|
Can you still buy duty free at the airport and take it on the plane when you fly to the UK from the US, or is this a thing of the past now ?
|Quoting AeroWesty (Reply 2):|
In brief, upon re-entry to the U.S., you may bring back $400 worth of purchases exempt from tax or "duty", whether you paid tax on them where you bought them or not (other countries operate basically the same, with varying limits for their citizens, and returning from some locations, such as the US Virgin Is. gives you a higher exemption.).
|Quoting GeorgiaAME (Reply 9):|
Just remember, duty free doesn't mean cheaper. It just means no local taxes, because technically, you were out of the country when the goods were purchased. More often than not, it means a much higher profit margin for the vendor.
