THE IRS is back with another auction of seized products that would enter the country illegally. This time, it is the result of apprehensions made in Fortaleza (CE) and has some Apple products.
In total we have 44 product lots available for bidding. It is always good to remember that, in many cases, the Revenue does not provide all the information about the auctioned products.
The list below – all lots with an Apple product involved – gives a good idea:
|4||MacBook Air||R $ 2,400|
|7||Golden iPhone 6s 32GB||R $ 1,000|
|8||iPhone 6s space gray 32GB||R $ 1,000|
|12, 15 and 16||iPhone 6s 16GB rose gold||R $ 700|
|13||iPhone 6s space gray 16GB||R $ 700|
|14||16GB gold iPhone 6s||R $ 700|
|17||iPhone 7 Plus 128GB Matte Black||R $ 800|
|18 and 19||64GB gold iPhone 8||R $ 800|
|20||Apple Watch (no model specification)||R $ 600|
|28||Apple Watch Series 3, various perfumes, garments and more||R $ 1,600|
There are also a few batches with consoles, Google Chromecast, Bluetooth speakers, SSDs and more.
How to participate
The entire process is done digitally. Those interested in purchasing such items must have a valid CPF and an e-CAC (authentication code issued by the IRS, which will be used to access the site correctly and be able to participate in everything).
Proposals must be submitted for analysis by December 17 at 6 pm, and the best ones will be selected to participate in the online auction, which is scheduled for December 18 from 10 am. Auction winners must withdraw products in person.
More information can be found on this page of the IRS.
