I was pretty sure that it is always the shippers responsibility for paying duty.. I would PM him, and send him the letter, and get him to pay.. If not let the mods know.. next time if u r gunna ship to Canada, just add in what the duty (6.1%) would be.

Why would a seller pay your tax? I've shipped to Canada at least a dozen times with computer parts, etc. And never heard anyone to ask me to do that or that I should. We don't even live in Canada we don't pay duty taxes here.

usually if the guy doesnt pay upon delivery, they will send him a bill in the mail. Its up to him (the buyer) to pay it, and if he doesnt, he can argue with Canada Customs.

If you use Fedex to ship to Canada and they do not recieve the payment (this is because they deliver the package first and then send the buyer the bill for the taxes) from the buyer for the taxes and duties within 30 days of the delivery they automatically send the bill to the shipper(sender) this is only done at Fedex.

If you ship to Canada via USPS they will not deliver the package untill the buyer pays the taxes.

UPS does the same(no pay no get the package)

Do not send to Canada via fedex.

Take it easy buddy... The 8$ duty fees we paid to fed Ex. Like you said, they had a hard time reaching me (since you didn't write the adress correctly) so I only got the bill in early january. If you have any problems Just PM. Just dont go & talk B.S. about anyone on the forums like that.

As for Fed Ex, you owe them nothing at all.
It was my responsibility & I took care of it.

End of discussion.

Hi guys
Was just wondering what are the taxes slapped on to a STI that is imported from USA? Also, Does the price of insurance deter people from owing this superb car?

goldwave, go to your insurance agent, as all peoples quotes are different. Taxes to have a US car brought to Canada is 6.1%. You have to add PST, and GST as well. It will equal roughly 19% for taxes.

So I am assuming that if I am willing to drive the car back ALL the way from Lets say, Boston....or even California, it would be a good deal as I am able to get it cheaper from there? I have seen many good cars with low resale prices in the USA.

I am doing this for a car. But remember to add the 19%, + if the car has A/C its a extra $200 fee. There is also a processing fee of 200. There is also paper work you need to do. And when you do get it in Canada you are going to need to get a safetied done at Canadian tire of all places, because they are the only certified company to do the safetied transfer. You will have to get daytime running light installed.
Oh and before you bring the car across the boarder you need the have a letter that says all the recalls on the car have been fixed or you cant cross.
I am sure I have forgot a few things. If you Google it you will get the rest of the info.
