ANNOUNCED AS TEMPORARYNo
U.S. Customs and Border Protection published a ruling in the May 18, 2016 issue of Customs Bulletin and Decisions that will lead to a substantial reduction in the tariff on certain garment hangers. CBP had previously found hangers imported with garments to be classified with, and dutiable at the same rate of duty as, the garments themselves; tariffs on clothing are generally in the 16-20% range. CBP will now reclassify the hangers as other plastic articles for the conveyance or packing of goods under HTSUS 3923.90.00 and thus subject to a 3% duty. Comments are due no later than June 17, and the modification will be effective for goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after July 18.
