In the first 10 months of 2016, GSP saved American companies about $600 million in eliminated tariffs. GSP waived at least $1 million in tariffs on imports into 39 states – West Virginia joined the list in October! – plus Puerto Rico.
The map below shows the overall GSP imports and savings by state from January to October.
Companies in California continued to lead the way with $97 million in tax savings. Imports into New Jersey, Texas, and New York all faced $45-$55 million less in taxes because of GSP, while imports into Florida, Illinois, Georgia and Ohio all faced at least $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. These posts highlight some of the individual states, products, and countries with the biggest increases in January, February, March, April, May, June, July, August, September, and October.
