We heard that there is tax on alcohol. Is this true? How much are u allowed in before having to pay tax? 

 

Also so we might jewelry on board or off in Cozumel. Is there a tax on that? How much are u allowed in before having to pay tax?

The Texas Alcohol Board charges tax on all alcohol brought in. This is separate from US Customs allowances.

When you walk out of the terminal after going through Customs there will be a TABC Agent there asking if you are bringing any liquor or cigarettes. I believe the tax applies to all of what you declare.  In other words, I don’t believe there is an allowance before tax.  

 

FYI, I have never seen them ask to look in a suitcase or any type of bag or luggage.  In other words, if one were to put it in their luggage and forget to declare it I don’t believe anyone would know.  If you carry it off in those cardboard carriers the cruise line provides you’re sure to remember that you have it.  *wink wink, nudge nudge*
