Import tariff

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced a reclassification ruling in the August 19, 2015 edition of Customs Bulletin and Decisions that resulted in a significant increase in the tariff applicable to certain gazebos. The gazebos in the rulings consist of steel frames with canopies made of plastic textile and had previously been classified under HTSUS subheading 7308.90.95 (duty-free), but CBP has ruled that they may be reclassified under HTSUS subheading 3926.90.9995 and thus subject to a 5.3% duty. China and Mexico are the principal suppliers of this product.
