China Section 301 Tariff Refunds May Be Available Due to Recently Filed Lawsuit

UPDATE: Any Customs attorney can be contacted but according to information received importers must be included in the lawsuit to be eligible for the refunds.

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.

If you would like more information, or assistance filing your claim, you may contact Larry Ordet at (305) 894-1003 or David Cohen at (202) 730-4955 at Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg, P.A.
