As of Dec. 2, 2018, the scheduled 25% tariff increase  slated for Jan. 1, 2019 is delayed until March 1, 2019.

List 1: These are products taxed at an additional 25 percent. If your products are affected, you may file for an exclusion for an exclusion. Any exclusions granted will be retroactive to July 6, 2018 and extend one year after the exclusion determination is published in the Federal Register.

List 2: On June 15, 2018, the administration released a list of 284 other tariff lines on which additional duties could be imposed following a public notice and comment process. On Aug. 7, 2018, the United States Trade Representative released the final products on List 2. List 2 products are  subject to a 25 percent tariff. No additional products will be removed from List 2, but you may file for an exclusion.

List 3: Starting Sept. 24, products on this list have a 10 percent tariff imposed. On Jan. 1, the tariffs were scheduled to rise to 25 percent. The increase is now delayed 90 days (through March 1, 2019). See the USA Today story.
