Can a Canadian citizen get a refund on any taxes paid out while shopping the the US?
"No" originally posted by another user. I slightly disagree with
the above information. I have lived in many places across Canada.
When I moved to Alberta, and went shopping south of the border I
was informed if I showed my Alberta government issued ID, I
wouldn't have to pay any sales tax when shopping in the U.S. This
has held true for all consecutive trips to the U.S. but is not
available using just any province id, but there is a list of
provinces that are elligable for the tax break. Just clarify if
your province is elligable next time you find your self on American
soil. I swear I once saw a brochure for a tax rebate for Canadians
during one of my last trips to Washington. Check on the immigration
website to see if they have it there to download.
