    I am wondering that if I were to purchase from apple.ca would I be charged taxes? Or are the prices on the site already include taxes?

    Why don't you add something to your cart, start the checkout process, and find out.

    Assuming your ordering/shipping in Canada NO the taxes are not included in the prices listed. You will be charged both the GST/HST and the PST for your province.

    When I ordered my Macbook, I didn't see the taxes until I got my order confirmation in my email.

    I am pretty sure you would get charged. Isn't the whole point of duty free shopping, that you would get charged the tax, but b/c you declare it and show it to customs, you do not get hit with the tax?

    ??? Bizarre response of the day.

    The only way you can order from apple.ca is if the delivery address is in Canada. Apple charges GST plus the appropriate sales tax for the province of delivery. You are also forbidden from re-exporting the goods.

    To the OP: Not hard to find:

    Apple.ca/store Terms and conditions
    "Sales Tax

    Apple Store purchases will include appropriate sales tax based on where the product is shipped and the sales tax rate(s) in effect at the time of shipping. The proof of purchase includes any applicable sales tax."

    ALL prices advertised on anything in Canada are assumed to be taxes additional. There is no tradition of "VAT included" pricing like in the UK. Where are you located??
