A friend is in the USA and is coming back to Slovenia (EU). Can he buy a graphics card for me in the US and bring it home with him? Because it's so much cheaper in the US, I thought this would be a good idea. But I hear that there's a "problem" with tax and that you might end up paying a lot more for it because of VAT and customs. I also heard something about declaring an item as a gift at the border, which would make it immune to the tax. Sounds a bit too good to be true in my opinion?
- Will the GPU be in danger of being confiscated if it's in it's original packaging on a flight?
- Will the customs in Slovenia automatically demand a 22% Tax for the GPU? The price of it is 340 dollars (307 eur).
I do apologise if the questions are a bit stupid or obvious, but I have never had experience with this, so I thought better be safe than sorry.
