rate paid on applicable overpayments or underpayments of customs duties 
must be in accordance with the Internal Revenue Code rate established 
under 26 U.S.C. 6621 and 6622. Section 6621 was amended (at paragraph

interest rates applicable to overpayments: one for corporations and one 
for non-corporations.
    The interest rates are based on the Federal short-term rate and 
determined by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) on behalf of the 
Secretary of the Treasury on a quarterly basis. The rates effective for 
a quarter are determined during the first-month period of the previous 
quarter.
    In Revenue Ruling 2011-18, the IRS determined the rates of interest 
for the calendar quarter beginning October 1, 2011, and ending on
