Dear Ms. Jewett:

In your letter dated February 5, 2008, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The tag is printed with a smiling face on one side and the words “name,” address,” “phone” and “e-mail” on the other side, with blank spaces beside each word to be filled in with the appropriate identifying information. This tag can be secured to a luggage piece by means of the attached polyvinyl chloride (PVC) tie strap.

The applicable subheading for the luggage tag will be 3926.90.9980, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for other articles of plastics, other. The rate of duty will be 5.3 percent ad valorem.

Duty rates are provided for your convenience and are subject to change. The text of the most recent HTSUS and the accompanying duty rates are provided on World Wide Web at http://www.usitc.gov/tata/hts/.
