Who knows how much do I have to pay of duty taxes for fashion jewelry from India?

Determing duty and taxe rates is a complicated task requiring the product first be classified in the Harmonized Tariff System (HTS). Specifics about the jewelry will need to be known as well as the actual origination of the materials it was made from. Below is a link to a page explainig how to begin this process and another link to the HTS database. http://www.cbp.gov/xp/cgov/import/duty_rates/determining.xml http://hotdocs.usitc.gov/docs/tata/hts/bychapter/0602HTSA.pdf The second link is to a large 10MB file with the U.S. Customs tax data. Many people chose to have an export broker do this work for them. Good luck with your import business.
