From September 1, 2019, Americans will raise the tax by 10% for the import of various goods from the Middle Kingdom, totaling $ 300 billion.
The new duties will not affect the previous list of products for which a higher tax rate of 25% is already in force. The list has accessories for smartphones – cables, charging and many other trifles. The new list of products, which will introduce a tax of 10%, is still unknown.
