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 provides 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 2018-07, the IRS determined the rates of interest 
for the calendar quarter beginning April 1, 2018, and ending on June 
30, 2018. The interest rate paid to the Treasury for underpayments will 
be the Federal short-term rate (2%) plus three percentage points (3%) 
for a total of five percent (5%) for both corporations and non-
corporations. For corporate overpayments, the rate is the Federal 
short-term rate (2%) plus two percentage points (2%) for a total of 
four percent (4%). For overpayments made by non-corporations, the rate 
is the Federal short-term rate (2%) plus three percentage points (3%) 
for a total of five percent (5%). These interest rates used to 
calculate interest on overdue accounts (underpayments) and refunds 
(overpayments) of customs duties are the same from the previous 
quarter. These interest rates are subject to change for the calendar 
quarter beginning July 1, 2018, and ending September 30, 2018.
    For the convenience of the importing public and U.S. Customs and 
Border Protection personnel the following list of IRS interest rates
