last time me and gf went shopping at the outlets and came back and was worried cause we bought like $700 and was probably gonna get taxed. but we rolled up and he asked the amount and i told him and he's like have a good night.
the other time we were lazy and said $200ish and he's like show me all the receipts that add up to exactly 200 and i'll let you go.. so learned my lesson there
That's exactly what I do. I calculate all the subtotals down to the last cent
I've never been hassled or taxed, even when I've declared $800+ at the regular border.
