China Section 301 Tariff Refunds May Be Available Due to Recently Filed Lawsuit
September 15, 2020
Below is a notice from the National Customs Brokers & Forwarders Association of America, Inc. (NCBFAA).
On September 10, a lawsuit was filed to the Court of International Trade (CIT) alleging the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) did not have the authority to "litigate a vast trade war for however long, and by whatever means, they choose." The filers are looking to obtain a refund of any duties paid on imports of List 3 products from China.
This lawsuit, if successful, could result in the refund of all Section 301 tariffs levied on List 3 and List 4A goods from China. However, importers must file their own independent claims to preserve their potential refunds by Friday, Sept. 18.
