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

It had a green declaration sticker stating that it was camera and a gift with the actual value of the camera. Mum had to put that in case it went missing in the post so she had insurance. The question is: do I have to pay tax on an item sent to me a gift. I didn't order it, pay for it or even ask mum for it.

The guy I spoke to at the SOL place said she would just have to claim back the tax in Australia, which she can't do (I don't think). And she brought it in June and had been using it (or at least trying to use it) since then.
