To be precise, it's seven years you will be put on to a red flag list, if you are caught misdeclaring imported goods, failure to declare, or attempting to import prohibited/restricted/controlled items without the appropriate permits and declaration. It will make traveling anywhere out of the country pretty exciting for the next seven years...
This does not include fines/duties/taxes associated with your particular case if you are caught and found guilty of any of the above. Each case is different, and your mileage may vary.
