Import Tax and Duties from Japan to the US

I have a question about import duties/taxes in the USA. I have purchased a large amount of clear files, books, acrylic stands, key chains and a few stainless steel mugs. I bought them using a proxy site called Buyee. I just paid for shipping and the total weight is about 22kg with a declared value of about $1700 USD. My only choices for shipping were EMS which was about $550 or DHL which was considerably cheaper at $170.

I have read so many conflicting things all over the internet about taxes/duties and how much I could potentially owe. Also heard horror stories about DHL/Fed Ex/UPS and their taxes. What can I expect from DHL and this upcoming shipment? Will I need to pay taxes? If yes, any idea of the amount?

Any help is greatly appreciated…
