    Default Do you pay PST or GST or both on Kids boots??

    I know you dont pay one on kids clothes. I just bought K a pair of boots and was surprised I was charged for both. So whats the skinny?

    Isn't it supposed to be only one tax UNDER a certain amount on all footwear?

    I know that Baby shoes are exempt from PST... but don't know about kids shoes.. if you mean for your DD, yes... PST exempt.

    From what I can remember from selling shoes for soooo long is that all shoes 29.99 and over are charged both taxes, and under is just one.

    Even when the taxes are going to be harmonized, children's shoes are still to be exempt..
    “And the budget also will include an exemption for some items from the eight per cent provincial portion of the single sales tax. Those items include children's clothes and shoes, books, feminine hygiene products, diapers, car seats and car booster seats.“
    Ont. to harmonize GST, PST

    Where did you buy them?

    Thanks- I bought them at Factory Shoe. I even asked the lady when I was checking out. She couldn't help me.
