Did you receive a Notice that looks like this from CBP?

(If so, we can help. See below)

9--1592-PENALTY-NOTICE

What Does This Notice Mean?

CBP expects importers to use “reasonable care” in reporting your classification (HTSUS), value, country of origin, duty preference program, etc. 19 U.S.C. 1592 is the statute CBP references when issuing penalties for negligence, gross negligence or fraud – depending on the degree of culpability CBP believes you had at the time of your non-compliance.
