Getting some gear from stats and going to bring them over the border next weekend. ( I do support local business except I have a special offer from this online merchant.) I have some questions regarding tax and duty.
Things to bring:
A pair of boots [Made in China]
A Helmet [Made in Japan]
A Visor [Made in Japan]
A tank pad [Made in US]
I know that we did not have to pay PST for the helmet since its protective gear, but since HST came in practice last year, I wonder:
Do I pay full 12% for helmets now instead of 6%?
What is the percentage for duty to pay for items not made in US? Is it 6%?
How do I proof the helmet is under tax exemption ?
