    I ordered something from Canada to have shipped to the USA and I was charged 12% sales tax. Is that right? :shock:

    I think you can take the receipt and get your tax back. When I went to Canada and came back I could have gotten all the money back I had spent on taxes. But it consisted of keeping all the receipts and then I had to do it at the border crossing I think. But if you have a CPA ask them.

    Hey Dennis,

    I would because you shouldn't have been charged taxes. Did the company you bought it from make a mistake and charge them. When I use to order things from the states, I never got charged taxes, and the same if I bought out of province. I use to buy my hunting stuff from Alberta since I only had to pay 5% tax instead of 13%. Now it's straight 13% across the board no matter which province I buy from, but still no tax if I buy from the states.

    Just my :twocents:.

    Sounds like the company treated it like they were sending it to another province? Deffinantly check with that company.
