RE: The tariff classification of a Santa wooden door hanger from China.

Dear Ms. Collins:

In your letter dated January 22, 2002, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

You are requesting the tariff classification on an item that is described as a Santa wooden door hanger, item number 987070. The item is a wooden depiction of Santa Claus that is designed for hanging on a door. The door hanger Santa is wearing a Santa suit, a Santa hat and gloves in traditional Christmas colors. The item is further embellished with holly leaves and candy canes. The Santa wooden door hanger is properly classified in Chapter 95 of the HTSUSA as a wood article for Christmas festivities.

The applicable subheading for the Santa wooden door hanger, item number 987070, will be 9505.10.1500, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for “Festive, carnival or other entertainment articles, including magic tricks and practical joke articles; parts and accessories thereof: Articles for Christmas festivities and parts and accessories thereof: Other: Of wood.” The rate of duty will be free.

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 Alice Wong at 646-733-3026.
