It is designed to hold a 4” stack of magazines upright and can be placed on a shelf or desktop. The magazine file box is available in three colors; black, white and gray.

The applicable subheading for the magazine file box will be 4819.60.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for Box files, letter trays, storage boxes and similar articles, of a kind used in offices, shops or the like. The rate of duty will be Free.
