 Taussig, Essay on Tariffs from the Encyclopedia Britannica: Library of Economics and Liberty
Where tariff duties are imposed solely for revenue, an equivalent excise tax is imposed within the country, so as to put the domestic producer precisely on the footing of his foreign competitor; and tariffs so maintained are in complete conformity with the principle of free trade.
The tariff of 1828 was affected by some political manipulation, which caused it to contain objectionable provisions, and to be dubbed "the tariff of abominations." But the so-called abominations were removed in 1832, when the protective system was deliberately and carefully rearranged.
Efforts were made also to reduce the tariff duties, but these naturally came last: they met with strong opposition, and in the end they were almost completely frustrated, thus leaving as the basis of the tariff the rates which had been levied in the course of the war.

 1816-1860: The Second American Party System and the Tariff
A House bill to increase the entire tariff schedule by 5 percent — with even higher duties on cotton and wool cloth, finished clothing, iron, and hemp — passed the House but was not enacted.
The marked upward revision of the tariff rates enacted by the Tariff of 1828, dubbed the Tariff of Abominations by its southern opponents, formed the basis for the nullification crisis.
The party platform endorsed revenue tariffs designed to generate significant funds, part of which were to be distributed to the states to pay for internal improvements (roads and canals), another component of the American System.

 CANADA/JAPAN: TARIFF ON IMPORTS OF LUMBER (L/6470 - 36S/167)/A
If the survey of tariff treatment were to be broadened to still other countries, like Norway, Sweden, Finland, Switzerland, Australia and New Zealand, it could be shown that in these markets as well, dimension lumber would face no discrimination on a species basis, but would have a single tariff applied to it.
Even in the Japanese tariff, SPF and all other species of dimension lumber were classified in the same general tariff sub-heading (HS 4407.10) and had the same unbound status.
Tariff concessions, however, should be, and had been negotiated, and concessions, distinguished by species, had been exchanged, and upheld, in successive GATT tariff negotiations.

 WTO | Understanding the WTO - Tariffs: more bindings and closer to zero   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
There is also a significant increase in the number of “bound” tariffs duty rates that are committed in the WTO and are difficult to raise.
Developed countries increased the number of imports whose tariff rates are “bound” (committed and difficult to increase) from 78% of product lines to 99%.
The first step in “tariffication” was to replace these restrictions with tariffs that represented about the same level of protection.

 Khaleej Times Online - Nepra approves tariff for new IPPs
The new tariff is a combination of many parameters and varies for different technologies of power plants and different fuel mix but lowest tariff for gas based projects comes to 5.9 cents per unit while maximum tariff for diesel based projects comes to about 13.8 cents per unit.
The Nepra has determined the new upfront tariff on the guidelines of the federal government that wanted to meet looming power shortfall in 2007 in the wake of economic growth in specific areas where shortages are very clear.
The Nepra sources said the new tariff was a slight departure from the 2002 power policy and revival of 1994 policy but it was bound under the government's policy directive to give upfront tariff.

 TARIFF SIMULATION RESULTS REVEAL NOTHING NEW, SAY DELEGATES
Some countries argue that developing countries should give up recourse to the flexibilities in exchange for a formula coefficient that would leave them with tariff levels higher than those of developed countries after reduction (this would not necessarily entail a smaller percentage reduction than industrialised countries, since their NAMA tariffs are generally much higher).
Sources report that the NAMA simulation indicated that granting these 'Paragraph 8' flexibilities to developing countries would have a fairly mild effect on the final average tariff rates after the application of the reduction formula -- of the order of a couple of percentage points, and likely to be even lower.
The simulations in both negotiating areas made separate calculations for the different proposals' effects on all tariff lines and those for 'dutiable' product categories, i.e., the lines for which tariffs are not bound at zero.

 WTO | Agriculture - tariff reduction methods
In practice it is mainly used in regional free trade agreements where the final tariff rate is zero, or a low tariff, for trade within the group.
For example, no cuts for tariffs between 0 and 10%, 25% cuts for tariffs between 11% and 50%, 50% cuts for tariffs above that, etc. A variation could include scrapping all tariffs below 5% which are sometimes seen as a nuisance with little benefit.
Only when the starting tariffs are low do the final tariffs have rates close to the Swiss formula (as in the example): if the tariffs start at 10% and 25%, the rates in year 6 are 6.4% and 16%.

 SBC TIPToP Tariff
It is a new tariff filed by SBC on November 24th, 2004, for 11 of its states and it quickly raised a firestorm of concern from VoIP providers and from the FCC.
The tariff itself is reminiscent of those credit card “offers” which promise 0.5% interest over the life of a loan, but in the small print say that the interest may go as high as 25% if one payment is missed.
The TIPToP tariff takes advantage of the recent FCC ruling that all Internet-originated voice traffic is inter-state in nature and that there are four rates per state for a MOU irrespective of whether or not the originating and terminating number are in the same state.
