PLEASE NOTE: We are a legal, registered business called "". We abide by all Canadian laws, therefore we declare our profits as income and pay income tax on those profits. ALL registered businesses must, by law, collect HST or GST if the business has a gross annual revenue of $30,000 or more. Only a few Provinces have switched to HST (Harmonized Sales Tax), Ontario is one of those Provinces, others have kept the old system by not combining the PST and the GST, for example Alberta, is one of those Provinces that have kept the taxes separate. On top of all this the amount of tax, HST, GST and PST varies from Province to Province. What does this mean to “” and you?? Although our business resides in Ontario, when birds are sent from another Province we must charge the tax that is applicable to that Province. When bird entries come from a Province that has HST, we must collect the HST that is applicable to that Province. Bird entries from another Province that does not have HST, than we only charge GST. American entries will pay at the Ontario rate which is HST at 13%. Taxes are only on perch fees, not on entry or special race class entries. No W9 – 1099, no taxes on winnings.
