post #10621 of 23812
I'm interested in the proposed GMTO for the Carmina split toe referenced here:

http://www.skoaktiebolaget.se/collections/carmina/products/carmina-split-toe-burgundy-gmto

I am wondering though if anyone has pictures of Carmina's Burgundy in the wild so I can get a good indication of the color. It looks a bit brown on the website, which would actually be my preference, but interested either way.

Thanks to anyone who can assist.

Talking about import tax...I live in Canada most of the time, but I ships expensive goods that I order online to Hong Kong first to avoid tax then ship it back to Canada again.

Canada's Tax Enforcement Agents are now watching you closely.  Both of them.

Well I'm kidding around, mostly, so I mean nothing by my post.  Given how hilarious shoe humor and tax humor are independently, I'd think shoe + tax jokes would bring down the house, but evidently, no.

 

But since you asked, I suspect Canada's view would be that you are skirting taxes.  I personally don't care.  Your question is like asking what's wrong with going 20 mph above the speed limit since you've never been pulled over for it so far.

Nah, NY.

@leaves, maybe my question got lost in the tax conversation. Any update on Shanklin?

For example the state of Massachusetts has a sales tax of 6.25% that applies to nearly everything except food and clothing up to $175 dollars.

So it works like this if you import a pair of shoes from abroad that cost $1175.00 you would have to pay sales tax of $62.50 (the first 175 is exempt and then $1000 x 6.25% = $62.50 this goes to the state government.

Then there is 8.5% import tax that goes to federal government 1175 x 8.5% = $100.00

Majority of people do not know about this and even if they did they probably decide not to pay these taxes anyways.

Yup. That's why they are reforming this major loop hole so anything shipped to your house gets a tax auto applied. Technically they can check customs records and then fine you if they find out you didn't report it but cost benefit seems low so reform is likely.

Canada has one I believe in the works but stuck in red tape hell.
