'Tax Free' and 'Duty Free' actually mean two different things. Tax free refers to Value Added Tax (VAT) which in the UK is currently 20%. Duty free means there is no excise duty. This is a tax that is payable to the government and varies from item to item so the percentage would be different for each item. For example the tax on tobacco and alcohol is excise duty.

You really must give us an idea of what you are talking about. This habit of yours of throwing out phrases out of context makes it hard to give a good answer.
