If new, you’ll pay GST in Alberta and PST for BC.

If you are buying privately, there will be no tax in Alberta but you will pay 12% in BC. Been there, done that when I bought my last bike.

I bought mine privately and that may be why I didn't pay the GST in Alberta. If the two others above did in fact pay GST in Alberta, I suspect that's because they purchased through a dealership... or they were just guessing.

Thank the used vehicle dealerships for lobbying the government to include the GST in the PST for used purchases. Used to be GST wasn't payable more than once on an item, now it's just hidden in the boosted PST on used vehicles.

Do we know for a fact that it was the used vehicle dealership lobbying ?
