Art. 3. The appraisement expressed in the preceding article shall also serve as a basis for the appraisement of the articles which in the second and third parts of section 5, chapter 2 (Title 1, Book I), of the fiscal coile are referred to the merchandise expressed in that article.

ART. 4. The articles specified in articles 1 and 2 shall also pay the 25 per cent. on the appraisement, additional duties, in the terms expressed in article 40 of the fiscal code.

NOTE.—The 25 per cent. additional duties mentioned in the above article and in article 40 of the fiscal code is reckoned on the appraisement and not on the duties; so that the duties on an article given in the tariff at 70 per cent. are in reality 70+25=95 per cent. of the valuation.

In addition to this, a tax of $1 per cwt. is levied on all merchandise entering the custom house in Guatemala City for the benefit of the municipality.
