CBP HAS NOTICED THAT SOME FILERS ARE ERRONEOULSY SUBMITTING COTTON FEE DATA FOR AN ACE FILED 
INFORMAL ENTRY SUMMARY. INFORMAL ENTRIES ARE EXEMPTED FROM THE COTTON FEE ASSESSMENT.

THE SUBMISSION OF THE COTTON FEE ON INFORMAL ENTRIES HAS RESULTED IN STATEMENT RELATED ISSUES.
THE COTTON FEE TOTALS ON THE DAILY STATEMENT WILL NOT MATCH THE DETAILED COTTON FEE AMOUNT FOR THE SUMMARIES LISTED ON THE STATEMENT. 
THE TOTAL COTTON FEE DUE AMOUNT ON THE DAILY STATEMENTS WILL NOT INCLUDE THE ERRONEOUS COTTON FEES TRANSMITTED ON THE ACE INFORMAL ENTRY SUMMARIES.  

CSMS MESSAGES 92-000144 AND 93-000107 PROVIDES THE TRADE WITH DETAILED INFORMATION REGARDING THE PROPER SUBMISSION OF THE COTTON FEES.
