No there's no issues whatsoever with taxes or any other charges on goods shipped from the U.S.to Australia,providing that they are under $1,000AUD value,otherwise they may attract our 10% GST (Goods and Services Tax) much to the chagrin of Aussie retailers who are happy to charge like wounded bulls for the same stuff in their shops.The only real issue for us is warranty,as (generally speaking) the same Down Under retailers won't honour it.I've sent rods back to BVK,Orvis and Sage over the years and we pay the shipping both ways,but this is offset by the cheaper initial U.S.purchase price anyway.Oh yeah,don't use the online rates for USPS as they're way out of whack.
