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

Yes that is correct and they also made a copy of it. The guy I spoke to was in Zurich, my package is currently at the Winterthur post office. I can't believe it myself. He actually read me the xmas card my mother wrote that was with the camera.

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



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.
