Sid,

I think this is not completely true. I do know that NAFTA eliminates duty on many items made in the U.S., purchased by Canadian citizens returning to Canada, but not for American's bringing anything back into the U.S. that was purchased abroad.

I just read through the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol regulations and I can't find any mention of this.

In my opinion you will still pay duty if it was purchased outside the U.S. and exceeds your personal allowance of $800.

Take care,
Mike
