Do you ship items for your home-based business and find yourself having to ship outside the US? One thing you have to do when shipping out of the US is complete a customs form.
One of the key pieces of information on your customs form (that will help push it through customs in its destination country) is the Tariff Code.
The International Trade Commission maintains tariff code information on its web site. On this page, you can look up the tariff code based on the category of item you are shipping. It will be the code that needs to go on your form!
So don’t let the confusing tariff system stop you from shipping internationally – look it up!
