Just bought a pair of used SIDI boots in a private sale from a rider in the states, had a nasty shock when I picked them up at my post office.
They classified them as footware and charged me 18% duty in addition to the PST & GST.
Do I have any chance of disputing this? Do we know of a different classification which I could argue these boots should be and duty free?
Can they charge duty on used goods? In a private sale?
