Re: Paying tax on a gift sent to me??

I can't answer your question, but I just wanted to make sure I read this correctly:

he even read me the message on the card that my mother had sent with it!!! -which also stated that she had tried to use the camera herself but couldn't work it. (technologically advanced mother!)
They opened your package to read your mail?! Is this a standard procedure in Switzerland?

I will be following this thread closely because we'll be moving to Zurich shortly after the holidays and I'm hoping no one will notice all the newly received gifts amongst our belongings. There's no stopping grandma from sending the kid presents before and after we've moved.

Good luck finding out your answer.
