My Question concerns US Customs and Dealers bringing in Gold Bullion from Ghana
What is a Gold Dealer Certificate to mine, sell, import and export gold bullion anywhere in the world, that is originated in Ghana? What is its legitimacy in the USA, particularly USA Customs? I know some one who mined gold (40 kilo) in Ghana and has a certificate issued by them that is supposedly going to pass US Customs upon entry into the USA by air cargo. I am also a beneficiary of this consignment. It has not left Ghana as final payment has not been paid. Please tell me the legal ramifications involved. I am told that this certificate states that Dealers are exempt from IRS taxes until such time as the gold in actually sold. I do have a business that will sell this gold.
