A U.S. man will pay more than $22,000 to U.S. Customs and Border Protection to cover tariffs he avoided by intentionally understating the value of lithium polymer batteries imported from China, according to a press release from the Department of Transportation. The man was also sentenced to six months of home confinement, five years of probation, 200 hours of community service, and a $325 special assessment.
The man also violated DOT safety regulations by failing to properly package or label the batteries for air cargo shipment. These regulations apply to LiPo batteries because of their chemical contents and volatility.
