On Friday, July 10, 2020, the United States Trade Representative (USTR) gave notice that starting on January 6, 2021, the U.S. will impose Section 301 (additional duties of 25%) on various French manufactured goods.

This action is due to the determination that France’s Digital Services Tax is unreasonable or discriminatory and burdens or restricts U.S. Commerce.
