    That has to be against the law, but somehow bc gets away with it
    I bought a car in QC last year, I had to pay taxes on the car in QC, pay taxes again when I registered it in Ontario and had to fill out a form for QC saying I paid the taxes in Ontario so QC could refund me the taxes I paid there.

    Sorry! It might be the wrong place to ask this question....I am living in BC and I have a U.S. Dollar Visa card. Can I pay you with my US dollar Visa card directly? If yes, how? Thank you!

    This will only save you the US to CAD conversion (which is quite a bit depending on which regular/premium card you have). You can use it as freely as any other card, use that for the USD portion of the payment and a regular Canadian card for the GST + Shipping in Canada for maximum effect.
    There's always a discount when buying multiple items! Check out my other EE threads.

    amazon.ca has a VISA card with no conversion+2.5% fees. The 2.5% is regardless of the card you have. It's a flat rate for all banks.

    Well yes and no, Harper dropped 2% of fed tax a couple years ago but our provincial NDP govt. at the time thought it was a good idea to add 2% provincial tax on the very same day, they are no longer in power!

    I agree 100%. I work 10 hours per day and almost half of that gets taken by them already. Then from whatever remains, 13% of it goes on anything I buy. And there are the taxes on gas, property and anything you can think off. They have the most creative minds in the world working around the clock to create new ways of taxing. Special environment taxes for buying my mouse and keyboard - really?

    Are we taxed the 5% GST on used firearms manufactured in the U.S. and purchased from third-parties where IRG is ONLY facilitating the transfer and export?

    I hope we aren't taxed on items not purchased through IRG, but rather using them as a service provider instead!
