Buying a synth in Canada, need help.

Post by HappyFunTimes » Sun May 06, 2018 2:02 am

I'm planning on crossing from the US into Canada, and buying a synth for 1000 USD. Has anyone here done this? I'm asking because I want to get an estimate of taxes, duties, or whatever I will have to pay to bring it into the US. It is yamaha, so not made in Canada, or a Nafta country.

I did it yrs ago, IIRC had to produce a bill of sale and pay the GST and PST (now HST).
Prophet 08, Mini D, Radias, 2 x JD-990, Juno-60, 2 x JP-8080, Fantom X6, Speakeasy Stereo Rackmount Vintage Tube Preamp ...
