CBP Mistakenly Assessed Higher MPF on Shipments Entered Prior to Oct. 1, 2011

July 2012 - U.S. Customs and Border Protection announced this week that it has mistakenly assessed a higher merchandise processing fee on some entry summaries with entry dates prior to Oct. 1, 2011. The MPF was increased retroactively as of that date and CBP began billing for this increase the week of June 11, but some shipments entered prior to Oct. 1, 2011, have erroneously been included in that process.
As a result, CBP will reliquidate those entry summaries billed in error to reflect the original MPF rate of 0.3464%. This process, which CBP expects to complete no later than Oct. 6, will cancel bills on those entry summaries for which the importer has not paid the bill. Affected entry summaries for which the importer has already paid the bill will receive a refund. Moreover, incorrectly assessed MPF is a protestable issue. CBP recommends that importers monitor their entry summary liquidations and bills closely and not pay erroneously issued bills associated with these entry summaries.
