Ouch, that sounds like a real nightmare.
At that point I would just refund the item back to seller unless its not sold on your country and has to be imported.
That particular point is not the worst. Trust me. Even after me paying these taxes I find that product comparatively cheaper than what I get in my country. For example, if I buy something from outside my country for 1000$,pay 200$ for tax, it'd amount to 1200$,and for the same product in my country I'd have to pay like 2000$ without adding VAT.
I know some sellers that can under-value an item, basically he will write lower price on invoice than the actual price.
With this sometimes you don't have to pay enormous tax at all.
Exactly, but this case happens very rarely so good luck with anybody waiving their taxes off.

Ordered about $40,000 worth of mining equipment from Halong and DHL is stating I have to pay more than $1,200 in import duty taxes and fees! Is this right? I had no idea it would be this much. I live near the customs office, should I try to clear it myself? I’m in the USA.

I doubt if there is anything much you can do because most of the fees have been stated. Over here for example, if you want to import a vehicle even if the value is 90$ from where its coming from, you will.have to pay 40% of the market value of the vehicle as import duty even if you live in the custom office. Here, I think the import duty is not on the value but the type and category of equipment you are bringing in which is why its on the high side but nothing is stopping you from explaining things if it won't cost you anything.

Wait, did his increase in tariffs effective immediately?
I thought there are adjustment period for a few weeks/months before the tariffs got increased.

I'm not sure but I would guess that electronic items from China would be the first ones to have its tarrifs increased because they enter the US by bulk.

Look! BTC is starting to go up and be bullish again. ReadyPlayer1, hurry up lol.

It's less than 5% and yet you are complaining? Where I live customs duties vary from 10 to 40 percent, now that's what I call a legal robbery.

This.

And they call it "value added tax" as if any value was added by extorting money from the buyer  Angry

Truth is the new hatespeech.
