Import tariff

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced a reclassification ruling in the March 11, 2015 edition of Customs Bulletin and Decisions that will result in a significant increase in the tariff applicable to computer headsets. These items had previously been classified under HTSUS subheading 8473.30.5000 and duty-free, but CBP has ruled that they may be reclassified under HTSUS subheading 8518.30.20 and thus subject to a 4.9% duty. China is the principal supplier of this product.
