In a message from Customs, it has been officially announced that Section 301 duties are eligible for duty drawback. This is great news for importers.
Section 301 Background
In April, the Trump Administration proposed tariffs on 1,333 items under Section 301 and stated that the official list would be announced June 15, 2018.
That official list of products has been announced and separated into two sets. The first set contains 818 items of the originally proposed 1,333 items. These products will be subject to a 25 percent tariff, beginning July 6, 2018.
The second set contains 284 items that will be subject to additional duties, effective July 6.
