The applicable subheading for the double-ended halogen lamps will be 8539.21.40, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other electrical filament lamps...tungsten halogen: other. The rate of duty will be 4 percent ad valorem.

The applicable subheading for the tru-aim lamps and halogen bulbs will be 8539.21.2080, HTS, which provides for other electrical filament lamps... tungsten halogen: designed for a voltage not exceeding 100 V. The rate of duty will be free.
