My understanding is that you can bring what you want through the border and pay 16 percent tax on them.Tvs, household items,mattress,bed frames so forth.Is there somewhere that you stop before you pass through or do you handle it after you pass.I am assuming taxes are paid against receipts.Just looking for some clarification..Thank you

just after you cross the line into mexico pull off to the left and park by the fence, then go to the office in the middle i think it is a white building.We just brought in a little at a time and drove thru sometimes with a trailer there was no questions asked,if you are under the $600. with 2 people in the car. not sure if your moving at 1 time or in trips??

Ok cool.Do you have to provide receipts.Whether the stuff is new or not
Yes, you need receipts. For used stuff or your own stuff just make receipts. Make the numbers believable. For new stuff, unwrap it and make it “used”, same kind of receipt. They will guide you to the booth to pay the tax but sometimes if it is slow and the boss isn’t there they want you to pay them directly, no receipt. When you cross the guard pretends he doesn’t see you. Weird feeling lol.
