Taxes, Tariffs & Trade
Taxes, Tariffs & Trade Issues
President Trump has indicated his intention to impose steep tariffs of 25 percent on imported steel and 10 percent on imported aluminum as early as March 9, 2018. Under Section 232 of the Trade Expansion Act of 1962, the President can do so to protect national security. The President has said that by imposing the tariffs he will help protect 80,000 U.S. steelworker jobs and address national security concerns related to steel imports.
