Penalties

The Trade Preferences Extension Act (H.R. 1295) included §806, a provision which increased penalties from $100 to $250 and $250 to $500 for intentional disregard.  Late filings will increase from $30 to $60 and $60 to $100 depending on whether more or less than 30 days.  The penalties are now indexed to inflation.  The cap (or maximum penalty per year) will increase from $1.5 million to $3 million for most filers.
