Over 17,000!!!!!!  The Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), also referred to as the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States Annotated (HTSA), is the primary resource for determining tariffs (customs duties) classifications for goods imported into the United States.  It can also be used in place of Schedule B for classifying goods exported from the United States to foreign countries.  The Harmonized Tariff Schedule classifies a good based on its name, use, and/or the material used in its construction and assigns it a ten-digit classification code number, and there are over 17,000 unique classification code numbers!!!!
