Tax/Customs implications transfer of residence to Ireland


My wife and I moved from Ireland back to NYC. We returned to the US March 11 this year, after leaving during the start of the pandemic in 2020 ( we were 8 months in Ireland). We are trying to figure out how much importation tax we would have to pay on our household goods for moving back again. We would be retuning before we have a full 12 months outside of Ireland. If we have a 20ft container of used household goods that we have shipped previously would we be charged customs if we haven’t been out of ireland for 12 months? Please let me know if there’s someone you might know who can answer this question for me.

Thank you.
