RE: The tariff classification of Christmas Stocking Hangers (item #A075EA00437) from China

Dear Mr. Crago:

In your letter dated February 8, 2008, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

You submitted a sample of the reindeer and snowflake Christmas Stocking Hangers (item #A075EA00437), which is being returned upon your request.

The Christmas Stocking Hangers (item #A075EA00437) are imported in two designs, reindeer and snowflake, and measure approximately 7” in height x 3 7/8” in width x 5 1/8” in length. The stocking hangers are made of iron and acrylic.

The reindeer and snowflake stocking hanger have hooks placed directly under the object for hanging Christmas stockings. The Christmas Stocking Hanger is a practical alternative for homeowners who do not have a mantel to hang Christmas stockings during the Christmas holiday. Therefore, the Christmas Stocking Hangers functions as an accessory to a Christmas stocking, which is an article traditionally used at Christmas festivities.

The applicable subheading for the Christmas Stocking Hangers (item #A075EA00437) will be 9505.10.2500, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for “Festive, carnival or other entertainment articles, including magic tricks and practical joke articles; parts and accessories thereof: Christmas ornaments: Other: Other.” The rate of duty will be Free.

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/.

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 Wayne Kessler at 646-733-3026.
