Does your company export items that were manufactured from goods that were imported into the U.S? Or has your company simply exported the same items that were previously imported? In either case, your company may be eligible to claim almost a complete refund from the U.S. government for any duties paid when the goods were originally imported—minus a small 1 percent fee charged by the government. Many companies are not aware of this refund possibility—called “duty drawback”—and consequently do not take advantage of a valuable resource available to U.S. exporters.
