RE: The tariff classification of a pillar shaped wax candle with LED from China.

Dear Ms. Diaz:

In your letter dated March 31, 2005 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The wax contains 55% palm oil and 45% paraffin. Your sample is being returned.

The applicable subheading for Style # D-IVY/S Candle with Lounge Light 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.
