China Tariffs Effective July 2018

Goods from China Subject to Section 301 Tariffs Effective July 6, 2018

Some 818 tariff lines related to goods from China are now subject to a 25 percent tariff in addition to the general (column 1) duty rate.  The tariff is being imposed in response to a Section 301  U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) investigation that determined China forced the  transfer of U.S. technology and intellectual property to  domestic Chinese enterprises.
