RE: The tariff classification of a wax filled glass jar candle from Taiwan.

Dear Ms. Aldinger:

In your letter dated September 24, 2002 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

In your letter you indicate a composition of 60% white wax oil and 40% latex powder. The sample is retail packed in clear plastic acetate carton tied with a red bow.

The applicable subheading for the wax filled glass jar candle with red lips design will be 3406.00.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for candles, tapers and the like. The rate of duty is free.
