A forty five piece driver/bit set is included with the tool chest. As you requested, the sample is being returned.

The applicable subheading for the tool chest will be 3926.90.9880, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other articles of plastics, other. The rate of duty will be 5.3 percent ad valorem. The rate of duty will remain unchanged in 2000.
