It’s simple really; you pay the tax of the Province in which you live.For example, let’s say you live in Alberta:
1) Picking up the vehicle in Vernon: if you pick up your vehicle and drive it home, both PST & GST will have to be paid initially, but you will be reimbursed the PST once you fill out the necessary government forms (which we provide). Once the Government receives and processes the forms, they will reimburse you the 7% PST portion (usually within 4-6 weeks). You only pay the taxes for your province and reimbursement is guaranteed.
2) Shipping the vehicle: If you make arrangements to deliver a vehicle to your home province, then you will only pay 5% GST which you will be charged at the point of sale.
