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

I had the same thing happen to me today. My mother-in-law send a gift for my son's birthday. The package doesn't appear to be opened but it has a Customs Declaration on it claiming a gift worth $100. When I went to pick up the package I had to pay $20! 1/4 of the value. I also received another package today for his birthday from a friend. It cam via UPS no declaration sticker and I didn't have to pay anything for it. I am so confused.... Do they only bill you for declared items? Will I get a bill in the mail later for the UPS gift?
