I'm Canadian and my boat is documented Canadian. We're noodling around the US, boat and I. The boat was bought outside of Canada
and has never been to Canada
I understand that if I take the boat into Canada, say into Nova Scotia
, there'll be tax due, 15% HST, based on her present value. The boat is 40 years old, having been built in 1974. Are antique vehicles and boats exempt from the HST?
I couldn't find this information on the web. Is there a web site that answers this question?
It used to be that vehicles more than 25 years old were considered antiques and were free from import
tax in Ontario
