We charge HST on almost everything.
The only items we do not charge tax on is PURE BULLION (.999 or .9999) precious metals such as GOLD, SILVER or PLATINUM bars or coins.
These items are tax exempt under provincial and federal tax laws. Everything else has 13% HST. Our system does not allow us to enter tax exemption status card numbers but our HST number is on every invoice and if you have a status card with a exemption from tax you can use our invoice to claim the HST back. Sorry but we have no way to process this at this time.
NATIVE STATUS TAX EXEMPTION: If you wish to have the 8% Ontario portion of your HST removed from your invoice you must fill out a form each time you make a purchase and show us your status card. This must be done in person as well (No delivery or shipping). If the card does not have a photoyou must also include a government issued photo ID to accompany the card. The card must be in the name of the bidder and the items must fall under the tax exempt allowable items. The card holder must use his/her own vehicle to transport the goods back to reserve land according to the rules and regulations on the government website. Metis status cards do not qualify. The Federal tax also does not get removed only the 8% provincial tax. A declaration will need to be filled out and signed that confirms the goods purchased off the SwapShop/Midland Auctions online auction website are exclusively for personal consumption or use and they comply with the Ontario Tax Exemption laws for native status card holder purchases for a 8% PST portion of the tax rebate. We are not permitted to photo copy your status card so you will need to fill out and sign our declaration for tax purposes. [CLICK HERE FOR FORM]
