CTUS and return the form to the issuing customs office as indicated on each customs form. Articles  with  customs  duty  assessed  will  arrive endorsed to show the amount to be collected, and CF 3419-A, Mail Entry Customs, will be attached.   The USPS assesses a fee that will be included within the total amount charged. Notify the addressee of the assessed customs duty by  preparing  PS  Form  3849  (Delivery  Notice/ Receipt),  see  figure  6-8.  Customs  duty  is  collected when  delivery  is  made.  Obtain  the  addressee’s signature on the original CF 3419-A as well as on PS Form  3849  if  the  article  is  registered,  certified, numbered insured, or Express Mail. Custom duties collected must be exchanged for a USPS money order, fee payable by addressee, made payable  to  the  appropriate  accountable  postmaster, (Postmaster,   New   York   or   Postmaster,   San Francisco).  Customs collections should be reported on  PS  Form  6019  (modified)  prepared  in  duplicate (see figure 6-9).
