Miscellaneous tariff bills are three-year reductions or suspensions of duties on specific imported goods, primarily intermediate products or materials. MTBs can yield tremendous cost savings for companies but they must comply with strict requirements to be eligible for congressional consideration. ST&R expertly guides petitioners through the MTB process, including reviewing import data to identify duty suspension opportunities, analyzing compliance with applicable requirements, drafting and filing effective petitions, and working with federal agencies and congressional staff to remove potential obstacles.
