Bahamas Import Fees

From what I understand, pretty much everything is now subject to import fees and stamp tax into the Bahamas. I'm trying to find out what the fees are so I can figure out what to have the in-laws send and not send. I've found very generic information (i.e. engine parts are subject to 15% and everything else is pretty much 45%) but I can't find any specific information. I'm looking at shipping in LED bulbs, conversion bases for the bulbs, a couple of light fixtures, a camera filter, electrical supplies (butt connectors, etc.), anchor chain and shackles, schoolbooks, movies, gps bracket, a wire stripper and a couple of other items, plus all my mail which includes a few magazines. They were originally supposed to visit us so we had everything shipped to them, and then they had to cancel for various reasons.
