Background

Interim regulations providing a new procedure for requesting refunds of harbor maintenance fees that were paid on exports were published as T.D. 01-25 in the Federal Register (66 FR 16854) on Wednesday, March 28, 2001. The interim regulation amended § 24.24(e)(4), Customs Regulations (19 CFR 24.24(e)(4)). An error was contained in paragraphs (e)(4)(i) and (e)(4)(ii)(A) of § 24.24 regarding the zip code in the address to send requests for refunds for harbor maintenance fees paid on both export and non-export movements. This document corrects that error. The correct address to send requests for quarterly paid harbor maintenance fee refunds is: U.S. Customs Service, HMT Refunds, 6026 Lakeside Blvd., Indianapolis, IN 46278.
