The term “Duty Free” refers to any merchandise exempt from the tax usually imposed. A consumer who purchases a good “Duty Free” does not pay the tax that is usually placed on his/her purchase, and is therefore exempt from excise duties.
By extension, the term “Duty Free” applies to stores and sales counters operating in airport customs zones and public areas.
