Modernized Drawback; Correction
Document Number: 2018-17847
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-08-20
Agency: Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Department of the Treasury
This document corrects a proposed regulation in a notice of proposed rulemaking published in the Federal Register of August 2, 2018, regarding Modernized Drawback. Specifically, CBP inadvertently proposed in 19 CFR 190.32(d)(2) an exemption for drawback claims for wine which included an imprecise reference to the entirety of paragraph (b). The reference should have been only to paragraphs (b)(1) and (b)(2), the specific paragraphs regarding the ``lesser of'' rule. As is evident from the entirety of the proposed rule, paragraph (b)(3), which implements the statutory prohibition on double drawback, applies to all drawback claims for wine. This technical correction remedies a clerical error that occurred when the language of paragraph (b)(3) was moved from a different part of the proposed regulations.
