Determine your HS or Schedule B Number
The first step in determining duty and tax information is to identify the product classification number, i.e. Harmonized System or Schedule B number for your product(s). More importantly, your goods won’t ship without this number on key shipping documents.
For HS codes, please refer to World Customs Organization or to the USITC site
The Census Bureau sponsors a free online tool called the Schedule B Search Engine and an instructional video to help you classify your products. We also have a recorded webinar on the topic, which goes into greater detail about using the search engine tool and a second tool for finding the tariffs and duties by the importing country.
