On May 31, 2019, the U.S. Trade Representative’s Office (USTR) announced USTR intends to publish a notice in the Federal Register next week that extends the amount of time for importers to enter certain goods exported from China before the goods will be subject to an additional tariff increase from 10 percent to 25 percent.
Covered products that were exported from China to the United States prior to May 10, 2019 will remain subject to an additional 10 percent tariff if they enter for consumption into the U.S. before June 15, 2019. Originally, the deadline to enter the U.S. before the goods would be subject to an additional 25 percent tariff was June 1, 2019.
Importers who file entry summaries, and retroactively become subject to a lower duty rate, may refile the entry summary (if the entry summary is still in trade control) or file a Post Summary Correction with the appropriate duty rate (if the entry summary is in CBP control). Contact your CBP client representative if you have any questions on the status of an entry summary.
