SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    Pursuant to 19 U.S.C. 1505 and Treasury Decision 85-93, published 
in the Federal Register on May 29, 1985 (50 FR 21832), the interest 
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 
(a)(1)(B) by the Internal Revenue Service Restructuring and Reform Act 
of 1998, Public Law 105-206, 112 Stat. 685) to provide different 
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 2013-16, the IRS determined the rates of interest 
for the calendar quarter beginning October 1, 2013, and ending on 
December 31, 2013. The interest rate paid to the Treasury for 
underpayments will be the Federal short-term rate (1%) plus two 
percentage points (2%) for a total of three percent (3%) for both 
corporations and non-corporations. For corporate overpayments, the rate 
is the Federal short-term rate (1%) plus one percentage point (1%) for 
a total of two percent (2%). For overpayments made by non-corporations, 
the rate is the Federal short-term rate (1%) plus two percentage points 
(2%) for a total of three percent (3%). These interest rates are 
subject to change for the calendar quarter beginning January 1, 2014, 
and ending March 31, 2014.
    For the convenience of the importing public and U.S. Customs and 
Border Protection personnel the following list of IRS interest rates 
used, covering the period from before July of 1974 to date, to 
calculate interest on overdue accounts and refunds of customs duties, 
is published in summary format.
