Customs Service

Until March 2003, the United States Customs Service was an agency of the U.S. Federal Government that collected import tariffs and performed other selected border security duties.

Before it was dissolved to form part of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security as the Bureau of Customs and Border Protection and Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the United States Customs Service had three major missions: collecting tariff revenue, protecting the U.S. economy from smuggling and illegal goods, and processing people and goods at ports of entry.
