Harmonized Sales Tax for Ontario and British Columbia

The Government of Canada is committed to developing partnership agreements with the provinces to improve the competitiveness of their tax systems and deliver services on behalf of its federal, provincial, and territorial partners.

If legislation passes as proposed, the Canada Revenue Agency would be responsible for the administration of the harmonized sales tax (HST) in Ontario and British Columbia. The HST would replace existing provincial sales taxes and the Goods and Services Tax in those provinces beginning July 1, 2010.

The Canada Revenue Agency and the provincial governments will ensure that businesses receive the information that they need, when they need it, for the transition to the federal administration of the harmonized sales tax. Please visit this web site often for the latest information and updates.
