U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced that it raised the value of a shipment of merchandise imported by one person on one day that generally may be imported free of duties and taxes from $200 to $800. 

As agreed in the Trade Facilitation and Trade Enforcement Act of 2015, signed by President Barack Obama, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced that March 10, it raised the value of a shipment of merchandise imported by one person on one day that generally may be imported free of duties and taxes from $200 to $800. This raising of the de minimis exemption is due to an amendment of the Tariff Act of 1930 included in the Trade Facilitation and Trade Enforcement Act of 2015. The de minimis is the minimum dollar value of qualifying goods below which no formal customs procedures are required and no duties or taxes are collected. This means most shipments into the United States valued at less than $800 are now exempt from customs declarations and import taxes.
