Tariffs and Import Fees

What is a tariff?

A tariff (or duty, the words are used interchangeably) is a tax levied by governments on the value of imported products. Sales and state taxes, and in some instances customs fees, will often be levied as well. The tariff is assessed at the time of importation along with any other applicable taxes/fees. Tariffs raise the prices of imported goods, thus making them less competitive within the market of the importing country. Before you export to any country, you need to determine what the tariff rate is on your product(s) as well as any import fees for that country. The following information will help you make this determination.

Step 1: Determine your HS or Schedule B Number

The first step in determining duty and tax information is to identify the Harmonized System or Schedule B number for your product(s).

The Census Bureau sponsors a free online tool called the Schedule B Search Engine and an instructional video to help you classify your products.

Step 2: Determine Tariff Rates

Once you know your product’s Schedule B or HS number, you will be able to determine the applicable tariff and tax rates in a particular foreign country. The links below provide resources for looking up specific foreign tariff and tax rates for your product. The video below explains how to find tariff rates using the first link below, Country Specific Tariff and Tax Information.
