The worst part is the tax in NS is actually back up to 15% instead of 13% now. I wouldn't mind it so much if it were just on games and luxuries, but I think it's ridiculous some of the things that get taxed while other things are tax-free: like toothpaste and soap is taxed but bags of chocolate chips, large containers of ice cream, or donuts by the half-dozen aren't — not sure how that's supposed to promote health and wellness.

NS is fugged, remind me next time I'm in the province, buy stuff before-hand, unless I'm buying chips and ice cream, which knowing me, is alllll good.Edit: Wait, does NS follow the HST, or is it still PST/GST? HST is supposed to be a nationwide set amount.

NS has HST, but HST can vary from province to province. I think the point of it is the federal government collects all the money and distributes the provincial portion to the provinces. The provinces can still decide their own provincial rates, so it was pretty annoying when the GST dropped 2% and then NS decided to raise the provincial tax 2% to take back the reduction the federal government gave us.

I've bought points card for my DS while I was in Alberta (Edmonton, to be exact), and BC (Forget what city) and did not get charged tax. Also here in Oshawa, Ontario, I have not been taxed on buying points cards, or using a credit card for any online service (Like my World of Warcraft, for example).Some places do charge tax, but they're generally stores that are independently owned like a convenience store. So if I have none at work, I go to Blockbuster as it's close to my house.
hey another oshawa fellow here, same here dude

Ahhh, I love being Canadian. Buy from the store? Not taxed, use points? Not taxed either. Credit card? Smooth sailing, bro.
Same here bro. Do you live in Ontario by any chance? Perhaps the provinces that don't get taxed with online transactions don't have any special laws in place for online transactions?

none that i can think of because when i tried to select ontario when regarding the location it wasnt there instead it was northeast territory or something lol i forgot they only have seperate provinces listed for the west side of canada so i was really confused on the difference and almost didnt know what to legally pick

Would I be able to change my location to Oregon even though I don't live there, for tax-free downloads?

To be fair, as I think has been stated, you were paying the tax before. The difference is that you were paying it on the point total you bought--$50 dollars in points cost $50 + tax. Now it costs 50, and the games institute tax. I prefer the old method, since this new one is gonna leave me with uneven leftover amounts even worse than Wii Points did, but it's not like you're paying more now or something. You're just paying in a different order.

Change your zip code to an Alaska zip code because we don't have sales tax.

"i really don't think they really care regardless if you can vote or not. "
Question is :If we vote, is there someone who will raise this to the authorities?how will we know if the latest news or development of the case?
