Canadian tax lawyer David Rotfleisch, founder and senior tax lawyer at Rotfleisch & Samulovitch PC shared his insights about the scary taxes for halloween. Treat buying taxpayers in four Canadian provinces — British Columbia, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Quebec — have two different types of sales tax to pay on their Halloween candy.
“The first sales tax is the federal Goods and Services Tax or GST which will apply to all Halloween candy purchases. The second sales tax is provincial level sales tax known as provincial sales tax (“PST”) in British Columbia and Saskatchewan, Retail Sales Tax (“RST”) in Manitoba and Quebec Sales Tax (“QST”) in Quebec.”
