Now, how much again is that Canadian VAT? 15-19% depending upon which provence.
Canadian goods and services tax is 5% at the Federal Level (it was recently reduced from 7%). Provincial sales tax (which isn't on services typically) ranges from 0% in Alberta to 8% in Ontario (the largest province). So the combined tax is 5% in Alberta and 13% in Ontario.
- The federal government issues GST "credits" to low income earners so they don't pay the full load.
- The GST is exempt on a large number of goods; including most basic household items (groceries, etc..)
