This is the dollar limit of items that you can cross without declaring taxes
Do you constantly cross from Mexico to the United States? Is it the first time you do it? Regardless of the answer to these questions, there is something very important that you have to take into account if you are going to cross into the neighboring country, and that is that most of the items purchased in Mexico need to be declared, according to the official CBP website.
The items that are exempt from declaration are the following and should not exceed $ 800 dollars: gifts and personal items, including one liter of alcoholic beverages per person over 21 years of age. The Border Patrol emphasizes that cigars that come from Cuba are prohibited.
CBP advises that it has zero tolerance for any type of drug, this could result in serious fines, vehicle impoundment, federal search, or incarceration. Another thing that is prohibited are the following items: sea turtle boots or any other item from endangered species (ie spotted cats, coral, crocodile, elephant, etc.).
Something important to note is that the vast majority of fruits are prohibited, these include oranges and apples, taking them and not declaring them could result in fines ranging from $ 50 to $ 1,000.
