Holiday Apparel Eligible for Duty Refunds

September 12, 2007

The Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (CAFC) affirmed the favorable decision obtained by Alan Goggins, a New York partner, on the reclassification of holiday apparel as duty-free festive articles.  This decision has the potential to generate duty refunds on a wide range of holiday articles upon which Customs has previously required the deposit of duties.
