(I just discovered that I hadn’t actually posted this last night when I wrote it…Oops! Not hard to tell why I’m not blogging for a living! 🙂 )
When I was purchasing some things in a gift shop this morning, the lady asked if I’d be claiming the tax back. I said I had planned on it, but didn’t know the process.
She helpfully explained it to me and gave me the card I would need.
She said it’s worth doing because even though I would get the full 23% back, it would definitely add up.
23%!!! I almost choked.
Before you ask, no I didn’t already know the tax was that high. Everything I’ve bought to this point was the price that was advertised so I had no idea how much of that was tax.
Anyway, it makes our 13% HST in Ontario seem rather paltry now…
I guess all things really are relative!
