All goods shipped to Taiwan must have a value and description.  Duties assessed are based on the Cost, Insurance, and Freight (CIF) value.  The duties payable on imported goods are essentially defined on an ad valorem, specific, or selective basis, depending on the items involved.  If, for some reason, accurate values cannot be determined, the wholesale domestic market value at the port of importation is used instead.
