WHAT IS IT?

An additional duty assessment, on top of any existing duty,  on Chinese products, by Presidential order.

HOW DOES IT AFFECT ME?

  • Resources for determining if your goods are subject to Section 301 assessments, and how much the total duty is:
    • Tariff  Lookup: to look up duty rates, visit http://hts.usitc.gov and enter the first six digits of a tariff number (i.e. 8708.99) into the search box.
    • List 1-4 Lookup: Refer to the link above, and search for your tariff number on the list.
    • If the tariff is on a list, simply add the appropriate additional assessment to the column 1 tariff rate found in the Tariff Schedule for the total duty to be collected.
      • Example: Column 1 tariff rate for ceramic tile, 6907.21.1051, is 10%. The tariff is also found on List 3, which imposes an additional 25%, for a total assessment of 35%.
    • To see if your item may be eligible for an exclusion, review the exclusion lists by searching for the tariff number, then carefully reading the specific details of the exclusion.
