    Click bang...not to be picky here,being taxed in the states,is based on where you either live or purchased it....e.g. Oregon has no state taxes on goods,Washington has a GST( of sorts),you buy the item and pay taxes as in kiwi.No sure if that makes a difference.Of all the the guns I've bought back to Kiwi,I've produced all of the original receipts etc,original owner and not paid any taxes as they are personal items...

    Rifle I bought in was exempt from VAT/tax in the UK as it was being sold to export which is why I had to pay GST before customs would release it.
