Title: Deferral of Duty on Large Yachts Imported for Sale.
OMB Number: 1651-0080.
Form Number: None.
Abstract: This collection of information is required to ensure compliance with 19 USC 1484b which provides that an otherwise dutiable yacht that exceeds 79 feet in length, is used primarily for recreation or pleasure, and had been previously sold by a manufacturer or dealer to a retail customer, may be imported without the payment of duty if the yacht is imported with the intention to offer for sale at a boat show in the United States. The statute provides for the deferral of payment of duty until the yacht is sold but specifies that the duty deferral period may not exceed 6 months. This collection of information is provided for by 19 CFR 4.94 which requires the submission of information to CBP such as the name and address of the owner of the yacht, the dates of cruising in the waters of the United States, information about the yacht, and the ports of arrival and departure.
Action: CBP proposes to extend the expiration date of this information collection with a change to the estimated burden hours based on recent data on the number of respondents submitting information under this provision. There are no changes to the information collected.
Type of Review: Extension (with change).
Affected Public: Businesses and Individuals.
Estimated Number of Respondents: 50.
Estimated Number of Total Annual Responses: 50.
Estimated Time per Response: 1 hour.
Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 50.
Dated: September 27, 2012.
