First off, What is a good free iPage web host with good bandwith and no ads? Many thanks for any response. Another question on my mind: Followed Peter Mosier's tax setup to a tee. Now I am showing GST + GST + PST on item but no tax showing on shipping..

Sub-Total: $224.99CDN.

7.0% GST + 7.0% GST + 8.0% PST (Ontario): $49.50CDN.

Flat Rate (Best Way): $9.95CDN.

Total: $286.63CDN.

I have read all the documentation I can find. Can anyone help..

Waiting to launch in Ontario..

Under $30,000 I do not charge GST, does anyone know the rule on HST?..

That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the answer to your question. I'll do some investigation and get back to you if I discover an useful answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could answer your iPage question..

Comment #1

HST is the same process as GST... Just curious as to why you need to charge HST if you don't live in the Maritimes?..

Comment #2

As far as I know from RevCan, selling to other Canucks requires collecting the taxes for that province..

Jim in NL..

Comment #3

Well, that's news to me. I was under the impression that we only needed to collect the taxes in the province that we reside and charge GST for the remainder of the country...

Comment #4

That's correct. But for the provinces that only collect HST, that is the tax rate since there is no GST rate for these areas..

So I'm led to believe.....

Comment #5

So, if I sell you something and you live in Ontario, I only have to charge you 7% GST & not the PST right?..

Comment #6

My understanding is that a business is only responsible for the federal tax portion, i.e. GST in most provinces, HST for most of the Atlantic provicens...

Comment #7

Well, I almost had it right.... I just modified my store to reflect NL & NS.... already had NB as this is my province of residence..

Thanks a lot for this post... I'm glad that I saw it... makes more sense for me now!!!..
