Has anyone else suddenly been hit for duty? I just got a bill from DHL for $129 in duty (11% on the total including some accessories) on the Caygill frame I received a week or two ago. It is still a bargain, but this is an unpleasant surprise, as I've never been charged duty on goods from UK before. Is this a legitimate charge? Is there some minimum invoice amount, like $1000 or something, before the duty kicks in? Or is Bush trying to reduce the budget shortfall due to the war?
