  • Help Renew the Miscellaneous Tariff Bill (MTB)

    Contact your Member of Congress today to urge support for renewing the MTB!

    Congress’s failure to renew a Miscellaneous Tariff Bill (MTB) is costing U.S. manufacturers an annual $748 million in tax payments and a $1.875 billion economic loss to the U.S. economy. For thirty (30) years, the MTB has supported manufacturers by suspending import tariffs on much needed manufacturing inputs that are not available domestically.  

    Congress last eliminated these distortive tariffs by enacting the U.S. Manufacturing Enhancement Act in 2010 with strong bipartisan support in both the House and Senate. The tariff relief provided by that legislation expired at the end of 2012 and manufacturers are suffering because of it.

    Due to Congress’s failure to act, manufacturers are paying tariffs on inputs necessary to manufacture their products, which undermines their competitiveness, raises their costs and hurts their ability to retain and create manufacturing jobs in the United States.
