RE: The tariff classification of an artist's kit from Taiwan

Dear Ms. Magyar:

In your letter dated March 4, 1993, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The merchandise is Artist's Kit, item no. 51803. It contains water color, a paint brush, paper, pencils, markers, chalk, crayons, an eraser and a sharpener.

The applicable subheading for the kit will be 9609.90.8000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for pencils, crayons, pencil leads, pastels, drawing charcoals, writing or drawing chalks. The rate of duty will be 0.5 cents per gross [pieces in the kit] plus 3.4 percent ad valorem.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Section 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of this ruling letter should be attached to the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If the documents have been filed without a copy, this ruling should be brought to the attention of the Customs officer handling the transaction.
