What is the taxes on electronics in British Columbia?

Posted by admin on November 29, 2012 in Environment Protection with 1 Comment


I know the tax is 12% but with electronic purchases there will be more. A guy bought a plasma TV for $798, after tax he paid somewhere around $925. The 12% tax already made his dollar worthless, so what’s the percentage of "Environment Protection" fee? My guess is if you want to purchase electronics in British Columbia, you pay 20% to 21% tax. Am I right or wrong? Thanks for the answers

In BC the environment fee on the TV is based on the size of the screen. So you will pay the 12% tax plus the following.

Television (18" and smaller) $9.00
Television (19" – 29") $9.00
Television (30" – 45") $31.75
Television (46" and larger) $31.75
