Two additional details regarding payment deferral
March 31, 2020
We have received two important additional details regarding payment deferral.
- Payment of Excise Tax (alcohol, tobacco, etc.) will NOT be deferred. A Customs Notice outlining this decision, including a revised payment due date for excise tax amounts on the March SOA and a waiver of the interest and penalty is expected within the next week.
- A final decision has not been made regarding whether non-resident importers (NRIs) will be eligible for deferral of payment. If the decision is made to exclude NRIs from payment deferral, a new payment due date will be set for the March SOA and there will be a related waiver of the penalty and interest.
