Tax/shipping personal items to US?

I will move to US soon. I'm just wondering if anyone knows if I will be charged tax for shipping such things to the US?
Should I make a notice somewhere that
these are my personal relocation stuff?

Also we're only planning on moving about 4 boxes for now with varying weight and one know who is the cheapest way to get it to US? Post, FedEx, DHL, etc?

Re: Tax/shipping personal items to US?

Hi. I will also be moving to the US soon and have struggled with how best to ship only a few boxes of personal items. I found this link helpful for calculating duty: http://www.dutycalculator.com/
As for how to ship, I found that the Deutsche Post would be the least expensive. Here is a link for their prices: http://www.dhl.de/de.html
