RE: The tariff classification of a luggage cart from Taiwan

Dear Ms. Davidson,

In your letter dated February 26, 2008, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The item in question is a folding luggage cart, which you have identified in your Ruling Request as Model YE-767A. The YE-767A is designed to collapse for ease of storage and is constructed of chrome plated steel with 5 inch plastic wheels. The YE-767A measures 22 inches in height, 17 ¾ inches in width with a 14 ¾ inch folding plate. You stated in our telephone conversation of March 6, 2008 that the YE-767A has a maximum carrying capacity of 88 lbs.

The applicable classification subheading for the YE-767A will be 8716.80.5020, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for “other vehicles, not mechanically propelled; parts thereof: Other vehicles: Other: Portable luggage carts”. The rate of duty will be 3.2%.

Duty rates are provided for your convenience and are subject to change. The text of the most recent Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States and the accompanying duty rates are provided on the World Wide Web at http://ww.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 Richard Laman at 646-733-3017.
