I was thinking to get my brother (who lives in DC) to mail me a couple of pairs of gym shoes and clothing (like 2 shorts and 4 shirts). All together about US$500 and all new stuff.
Does anyone know how much taxes + other costs (in addition to shipping fees) I have to pay to receive these items here in Brazil? Someone told me to declare like US$40 bucks for all of these items but does that really work?
Any other suggestions or insights would be much appreciated!!
