Shipping to South Korea from the United States
South Korea import tax & custom fees
Tax & duties are calculated on the price of the products and shipping costs
The taxation for a particular country depends on the local GST/VAT, as well as the item category and its declared value. The tax & duty threshold is the amount at which a person begins paying taxes based on the declared value of an item.
South Korea calculates using the CIF method, which means the import duty and taxes are calculated based on the value of the imported goods as well as shipping costs.
