PPAI’s coalition partners have prepared an interactive resource that shows the impact tariffs are having across the country.
PPAI has enlisted the help of an experienced trade counsel to explain the Section 301 tariffs. The finished product provides a plain language guide to what items are on the tariff list. The third group of products to receive additional duties under the Section 301 tariff actions were valued at $200 billion and took effect on September 24, 2018. This group listed several items that are prevalent in the promotional products industry. The duties on this group of items were set at 10% and will increase to 25% on January 1, 2019.

Section 301 Tariff Proposal: A Tax On Consumers
The United States Trade Representative (USTR) has released a list of $300 billion in Chinese products that will be subject to additional 25 percent tariffs. This is the fourth action taken by the USTR under the Section 301 investigation.
This latest list encompasses all remaining products imported from China that do not currently receive additional Section 301 tariffs.
Tariffs are taxes on American consumers. Please contact your elected officials and urge them to oppose this harmful tariff announcement.
