    Hi, i'm looking at getting a refurb macbook pro, and I was wondering if i'll have to pay tax on it? My theroy is that i shouldn't have to pay the GST being that it should have already been paid once, however I live in Saskatchewan, so i think i'll have to pay PST. Does anyone know if i'll have to pay either or both taxes? Any help would be great, thanks!

    Yup, you'll have to pay both GST & PST on the purchase. Your argument doesn't hold, since both taxes would have been refunded to the original owner when they returned their MBP.

    Ah yes, that does make sense. Thanks for the answer, too bad for me though, haha.
