Import Tariffs are additional taxes imposed by United States on certain goods imported into the country. These are imposed to protect domestic industries, regulate trade, or address other economic concerns. These tariffs are separate from regular Customs Duties that are applied to all imports.
The Section 301 China Tariffs, which came into effect in 2019, have had a significant impact on the Trade Community. These tariffs were imposed on a wide range of goods imported from China, and they have resulted in increased costs for businesses and consumers. If you are uncertain about the recent tariff changes and whether your goods are affected, we are here to provide guidance and help you navigate the complexities of these tariffs.
It's important to note that there have been Notices of Exclusions issued for certain products, meaning that some goods may be exempt from the tariffs. If you have already paid the 25% tariff in the past and your goods are now included in the exclusion list, you may be eligible for duty recovery.
For up-to-date information on the specific goods that are subject to the China Tariffs and the exclusion lists, you can refer to the official Tariff Lists provided by the CBP.
