What is drawback?

Historically the word drawback has denoted a situation in which a duty or tax that has been lawfully collected is refunded or remitted, wholly or partially, because of a particular use made of the commodity on which the duty or tax was collected.   

Drawback was initially authorized by the first tariff act of the United States in 1789. Since then it has been part of the law, although from time to time the conditions under which it is payable have changed.

The rationale for drawback has always been to encourage American commerce or manufacturing, or both. It permits American businesses to compete in foreign markets without the handicap of including in its costs, and consequently in its sales price, the duty paid on imported merchandise.
