Assessments and Exemptions
Assessments are collected on whole, fresh mangos at the rate of ½ cent per pound but due to an assessment increase approved by the board, industry and USDA, the rate will increase to ¾ cent per pound beginning September 1, 2012. Assessments on imported mangos are collected at the border via U.S. Customs and then forwarded to the National Mango Board. Assessments on domestically grown mangos should be paid directly to the National Mango Board. Click here for detailed instructions and necessary form.
U.S. mango industry members who grow or handle fewer than 500,000 lbs. of mangos in a particular year may be eligible for an exemption from paying assessments. In order to qualify for this exemption, you must have an Exemption Certificate. Click here for detailed instructions and application.
