Motorcycle(used Private) PST to Become 12% - $12 (Vancouver)
Used Motorcycle and automobile PST will be 12 % on April 1/13 on private sales Did you know that?
Used Motorcycle and automobile PST will be 12 % on April 1/13 on private sales while it will be 7% on dealer sales. Did you know that? Remember before the HST( horseshit tax) there was no GST on used private sales and then the HST gave us the 12 % Horseshit tax and we let the BC Liberal govt. know that that wasn't acceptable. We voted in the referendum to get rid of the HST and return it to the way it was before. The BC Liberal govt. decided that referendum and the people's decision means nothing so they cow tailed it to the used car and bike industry and shafted us for a yes, can you believe it 12% on the used vehicle private sale tax. So pick up your phone and call Christy Clark's office at 604 775 1003 and let her and your local MP know that by April 1/13 the PST better be 7 % as we voted or your vote will not be for them. By the way don't forget to ask your running candidates whether they will respect the peoples choice on the referendum at 7% PST.

So what do you'll think?
I knew we would pay 12 % transfer tax but I thought that was also for sales through dealers
