With a pocketful of Christmas cash expected and the relative strength of the Canadian $ vs. the US greenback, the temptation to hit the US stores for some deals next week is stronger than years past. However, paying duties and taxes when coming back across the border may limit the "real" deal factor of buying in the States, so, question is, does anyone know what the ACTUAL penalties are if you get caught smuggling back legal goods into Canada? I've heard various stories ... some saying all you're forced to do is pay the taxes and duties with no fine, others saying vehicles can be impounded until a fine is paid on top of duties & taxes. Anyone have the straight goods??
