Default Expats moving back to US and what or how much they can bring

When my daughter and her husband move back from China to LA in January, are they allowed to bring all their household items that they have accumulated living there in China for three years? We have visited them, and they have many nice things purchased there.

How does that work when a family comes back with all sorts of stuff from abroad to the US.

I wish to inform you that things used in residence can be grought back tax free as personal effects. If residence outside USA was for more then 1 year then all items used at residence may be brought back. If goods are not accompaying your daughter then CBP form 3299 may be filled as Declaration For Free Entry of Unaccompanied Articles including items as houseld effects not subject to duty.

Hi: Would that include decorative items like vases and antiques?

From what I understand it applies to normal household items,

When you start bring expensive vases, silver decorations, pearls and the like, you may have to pay duty on those such items.
