Section 301

Section 301 Tariff Refunds & Litigation

There are currently thousands of pending Section 301 tariff refund cases that have been brought to the U.S. Court of International Trade (CIT). They challenge the government’s use of Section 301 of the Trade Act of 1974. This recent use of Section 301 imposed tariffs on all Chinese-made goods belonging to lists 3 and 4A. People have argued that the previous administration took an action not authorized by the Trade Act of 1974 and which is also in violation of the Administrative Procedure Act by waiting too long to impose tariffs on List 3 and List 4A goods.
