COVID-19 90-Day Duty Postponement FAQs

As reported here earlier this week, on  April 20, 2020  the Secretary of the Treasury and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) postponed for 90 calendar days the deadline for payment for the deposit of certain estimated duties, taxes, and fees for importers experiencing a significant financial hardship due to the coronavirus disease (COVID-19).    

CBP is regularly compiling and posting answers to Frequently Asked Questions regarding this temporary postponement on the CBP.gov COVID-19 Updates and Announcements webpage.

The trade community should monitor CSMS and the COVID-19 Updates and Announcements webpage for additional changes related to COVID-19. Policy questions should be directed to the Office of Trade, Trade Policy and Programs at OTentrysummary@cbp.dhs.gov
