    This is a question that was asked in the October 2007 and October 2009 Tests. Tariff rates are subject to change. In 2007, the correct answer was 0.8 cents/kilogram and not free. However, by 2009, the tariff had been amended and so the correct answer was Free.

    0707.00.40 00 If entered during the period from March 1 to April 30, inclusive, in any year (here entry summary is filed on March 8)

    Since MX is included in the column for special rate of duty under 0707.00.40 00, the applicable rate of duty is currently Free.
