They're not initially taxed for international orders. I believe California and another state require taxing. So if you're in the states don't worry about taxes

Not sure if you're gonna get taxed but I've participated in two drops before each under $100 no tax there. There might be import fees if you live in another country besides USA. Again I didn't have to pay any import fees for the drops I participated in previously. I live in Canada just so you know.

My understanding is that you're always SUPPOSED to pay import tax on international orders, but if the package ships through canada post then 90% of the time you won't be charged (whereas anything that ships through puralator or fedex or anything else will always be charged duty) because they just don't bother to check the majority of the packages.

I'm hoping that Canada Post is going to be too overwhelmed with the amount of packages coming through that they let this slide through import taxes. My Philips Fidelio L1 was taxed and that came up to $26 extra for something that was $105 USD from the start

Though I'm not from Canada, I can agree that almost all of my purchases that are delivered via regular post (phlpost for me) as opposed to couriers like FedEx don't get taxed.

It depends on the cost of the item. Legally in Canada, anything under $20 is not taxed but in my experience if it's small and doesn't cost that much more($30-$40ish) Canada Post doesn't bother to tax it. But on big items or more expensive items, they will tax it like the Code Keyboard I got from MassDrop.

I got taxed on anything coming to canada through canadapost, dhl, purolator and the rest....they are just a bunch of a$$ho*les. I got even taxed for my own used stuff that I shipped back to canada.
Canadapost contracts some brokers at port of entries and with the tacit agreement of the government they tax people without any justification....some big huge BS.

I live in Quebec . You didn't get charged any taxes. The $250 price you paid was just the conversion from USD to CAD. I also paid $250 which is what I calculated the conversion to be.

From my experience as well it seems that other shipping carriers would charge me import fees. But whenever they pass it to Canada Post they never charge me import fees. I'm hoping that's the case again here just like the last two drops I participated in. Otherwise I expect to get a massive import fee as I was once charged $40 of import fees on the Steelseries Siberia V2 which was ~$100 :/
