Default What taxes/duties do you pay ordering electronics from the US?

I was wondering if anyone had ordered any electronics (ie. subs, amps, etc.) from an online retailer in the US and knew what taxes/duties I would have to pay?
I'm assuming that I would have to pay PST+GST (14.5%)...but are there any other duties/tariffs?

Yah, there'll prob. be a brokerage fee from the shipping company. All that means is that you pay for them to take a piece of paper to customs to get stamped and what-not. Of course on top of that, you'll have to pay GST/PST on the brokerage fee - since it is a service.

Good luck!

Yeah, that's about right.


Depends on where the electronics were originally manufactured. And you thought those "Made in China" stickers were just there for kicks -- hah!
