The Office of the United States Trade Representative (USTR) has finalized list two of Section 301 tariffs on Chinese products. The list contains 279 tariff lines—about $16 billion worth of imports from China—and will be subject to a 25 percent additional tariff. Customs will start collecting these additional duties on August 23, 2018. A Federal Register notice will also announce a process to request product exclusions for items subject to these additional duties.
If you have questions about these tariffs and how they may affect your business, reach out to your Mohawk customer service representative.
