Understanding Drawbacks

What is a drawback, and how is it related to taxes and tariffs?

The term drawback is used to describe a refund of certain very specific Internal Revenue taxes as well as the Customs tariffs and other fees paid on imported goods. Only when a claim for drawback has been lodged, the imported goods are exported or destroyed, and Customs issues these repayments.
