Can you put a lower value on the invoice, so that I avoid customs charges?

This question comes in multiple varieties, like

  • I would like to know if the materials can be sent without the original packaging and sent as a gift. Import taxes in [country] are very high.
  • Can you put maximum 75 euro on the invoice, so that I avoid paying customs duties?
  • Please set the price in the receipt up to 70$, otherwise I will have to pay extra taxes in my country…

Unfortunately we cannot do this. This is tax evasion / fraud, and we will not be accomplices to the act. The penalties are severe, both for the customer and the merchant.
