    Ok so I live in British Columbia Canada.

    When I buy a iTunes card I pay the Draconian 12% HST rammed down our throats s by Gordon Campbell.

    I now notice that iTunes then charges me the same 12% HST when I make a purchase on that credit. 24% taxes!!

    bye bye iTunes prepaid cards!!!

    Check with the retailer. They may be the ones double dipping. In Ontario, I did not pay HST on the card itself.
