Receipts for Customs?
Posted 22 June 2009 - 11:15 AM
I have been reading alot of threads that mention having to bring receipts for the items that you have packed away to put into your guests OTT gift bags once at your resort. Many of these threads mention using faux-receipts too.
Why do you HAVE to bring these receipts?
Why are faux receipts the best to use? What is the minimum dollar amount that must be stated in order to NOT have to pay taxes on customs?
What happens if you do not HAVE these receipts?
Any advice you can offer will be much appreciated! Thanks in advance!

start by reading this thread :
It should bring a lot of answers (why, dollar amount, what happens if not, etc)
Now you don't need faux receipts if your receipts show less than 300$ total by person (ie 600$ for you and FI).

In order to remain under limit and not have 6 suitcases, we also gave items for reception to relatives to bring for us later since we didn't need them until wedding day.

We were also planning on splitting all of the items into two bags so that my parents could take one and we could take the other. None of the items purchased have a receipt value of over $300. The closest we have come is for our embroidered towels but the total for that was $241.
Thanks for all of your replies, ladies!
