Sales Tax on Title Transfer for Private Sales in Canada?

Postby craighondo » Mon Aug 14, 2017 11:15 am

I was recently looking at a van and talking to the seller about having made trips up to BC looking for a Delica, noting that they were much cheaper than the vans available in the states.

He said that if I bought a van in Canada, I would also have to pay the 12% sales tax for the sale when I went to transfer the title and buy temporary insurance to drive it over the border.

I have never heard of this before or come across it in my research.
Does anyone know if that's true?

For what it's worth, my insurance policy on my other vehicle gives me 14 day coverage for a new vehicle. I don't know if that covers a vehicle purchased out of the country and not registered in the US, so I'll have to look into that.

Thanks
