What is Drawback
When goods are imported into the U.S., a duty ( aka, a tax) must be paid to the government. But, often times, these items are returned because the items go unused and are sent back exactly how they arrived, or perhaps, they were manufacturing goods that were used on items that are exported or destroyed, or goods were received unintentionally and need to be exported or destroyed. All of these circumstances trigger the ability to receive a refund on any duties paid on the items when they entered the country. The return of the paid duties is called draw-back, and over $350 million dollars in drawback is returned to companies each year.
The draw back process is one of the most complex commercial programs that the U.S. Customs and Border Protection administers and so it is wise to employ a drawback service, like Duty Calc, to ensure that you receive every penny of draw-back that is due to you.
