CBP Form 28 Gets Extended Comment Period
U.S. Customs and Border Protection is reopening through March 17 the period for public comments on the proposed extension without change of CBP Form 28, Request for Information.
CBP is responsible for appraising imported merchandise by ascertaining its value, classifying goods under the tariff schedule and assessing a rate and amount of duty to be paid. When the invoice or other documentation does not provide sufficient information for appraisement or classification, CBP requests additional information through the use of CBP Form 28. This form is completed by CBP personnel and the importers, or their agents, respond in the format of their choice.
