NEW YORK (Reuters) – Apple Inc said it introduced the AMERICAN import duties on goods from China, including iPhones, iPads, and Macs, and will reduce the company’s contributions to the U.S. economy and hurt its competitive position in the global marketplace.

The US government doesn’t have to deal with a proposal to impose tariffs of 25% on the other $300 billion worth of goods from China, the tech company said in a response posted on a government website on Thursday.

Apple said that the charges would be, also got Airpods, AppleTVs, and batteries, and it is one of the last AMERICAN companies to make the Trumpet of the administration of the plan and for additional fees.

The trade talks between the United States and China are to resume after more than one month away from the status quo. The countries’ leaders are expected to meet at the g-20 summit in Japan next week. The President, Donald Trump had said that he would consider placing tariffs on Chinese goods, after consultations, they fell apart in May.

Apple is the biggest US corporate taxpayer, to the united states department of the treasury and promised by 2018, with plans to directly contribute more than $350 billion to the U.S. economy in five years, the filing said. In addition to the reduction of these amounts, an Apple would be a hit because the Chinese and other non-U.S. firms do not have a major presence in the market.

“A US rate would tilt the playing field in favor of some of our competitors,” Apple said.
