2To Whom It May Concern: A gift from a friendTax issues31/08/2021
Hello. I hope you are well and healthy during this time.
one of my friend has sent me a birthday gift(wallet) from South Korea. It was via South Korean national postal company. She wrote down more than $50 as a value of the goods on a paper and it's been already waiting to get dispatched. I'm wondering if I will have to pay the tax for this one. It's a small package which is a genuine gift from a thoughtful friend of mine.

I'd look forward to hearing from you soon. Stay safe and have a good day.

Thank you

Best regards

5Customs duties, tariffs, VAT on gift to student participant in ISEFTax issues, Customs Procedures02/08/2021
To Vietnam Customs:

The American Statistical Association, a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting good statistical practice, sponsors Special Awards in Statistics for students who have participated in the annual Regeneron International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) and made particularly good use of statistical and data analytical methods in their research. A student from Vietnam has won one of these awards for 2021: a book on methodology in statistics and data science.

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, student participants did not travel to the United States for the 2021 ISEF (the competition and judging were entirely online), so we were not able to deliver the award to the student in person.

We mailed one such book to the Vietnamese award winner. It was listed as a gift on the U.S. customs form we filled out, since the student was not required to pay anything for the book. Unfortunately, the shipper substituted "merchandise" for "gift" in its documentation (we can provide copies of those documents if they are relevant).

We are concerned that the student might have to pay some duty, tariff, or tax on the book. Is this the case in Vietnam? Is there a limited exemption for which this award might qualify? We want this award to be a joy, not a burden, for the student.

Please advise us on how to proceed.

Thank you.
