All Canadian provinces have some form of general or limited sales tax, such as sales taxes, use taxes, value-added taxes, or specific sectoral taxes on fuel, tobacco, or hotel and accommodation taxes.
Prior to the implementation of the HST, the Ontario retail sales tax (“RST”) formerly applied at a rate of 8% to most sales, leases, and licenses of tangible personal property, computer software, insurance policy premiums, and certain services. however, the rst was largely repealed when Ontario adopted the HST on July 1, 2010. rst continues to apply at the 8% rate to certain insurance premiums and applies at a rate of 13% on private sales of certain motor vehicles.
