RE: The tariff classification of an art kit from Taiwan

Dear Mr. Maher:

In your letter dated March 17, 1999, on behalf of Roseart Industries, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The merchandise is the Glitter Art Set (item number 5001-6). It contains 12 crayons, 6 felt-tipped markers, 12 watercolor paints, 1 paintbrush, 1 sheet of stickers, and 5 sheets of colored paper. The art supplies are stored in a cardboard box that has a glittery finish.

The applicable subheading for the art kit will be 9608.20.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for felt-tipped and other porous-tipped pens and markers. The rate of duty will be 4 percent ad valorem.

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

A copy of the ruling or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If you have any questions regarding the ruling, contact National Import Specialist James Smyth at 212-637-7008.
