In the first seven months of 2016, GSP saved American companies about $410 million in eliminated tariffs. New Hampshire joined the list of states for which GSP eliminated at least $1 million in tariffs on imports, bringing the total to 37 states (plus Puerto Rico), and Hawaii is knocking on the door with an estimated $996,000 in waived tariffs.
The map below shows the overall GSP imports and savings by state from January to July.
Companies in California continued to lead the way with $65 million in tax savings. Imports into New Jersey, Texas, and New York all faced $30-$35 million less in taxes because of GSP, while imports into Florida, Illinois, and Georgia all faced $20-$25 million less in taxes because of GSP. This map will be updated monthly as new trade data become available and the most up-to-date version will be available at all times on our Graphics page.
