Bill Duties and Taxes To: If a person or organization is sending a package to your department from an international location, you

should be aware that customs fees for international shipments are charged by the country of import and are not covered by transportation charges. Therefore, when you provide the sender with your MIT FedEx account number, remind the sender to also complete the “Bill Duties and Taxes to” portion in Box 7 by selecting “Recipient” and reentering your account number.
