Anyone paying attention may have noticed that there has been a lot of discussion in the media about the trade war going on between USA and China. Well, the first round of taxes I was not included on, it was mostly large industrial commodities like steel and stuff like that being taxed.
The second round was everything. It looked like we found a code to use that could sneak by, but it seems like that may not be the case.
The most recent shipment of Arduboys that came into the US were hit with a 15% tax.
This is actually significant enough that I will not be able to continue selling Arduboys from within the USA. Everything may need to be handled through distributors.
Dark times are upon us.
