Occasionally I will get people requesting quotes for stuff coming from us in the US, to them in whatever country they're in. Sometimes they request the duty amount. I usually just tell them I don't really know for sure what it will be. I sort of feel like that goes past my responsibility. I actually would have no problem telling them, if it was very predictable, but it doesn't seem to be. Many countries seem to sort of wing it, and I would rather not say anything, than be wrong. I've sent stuff to the same country and had people say they were charged everything from zero, to numerous different amounts. I'm assuming most of the guys in Europe probably do include the duty amount, but just curious what guys in the US do, when people ask what the duty will be on something.
