Nova Scotia Information Guide 2006 R4

Tax Development Jul 02, 2010

The province has updated this guide to reflect the increase in the Nova Scotia Sales Tax (NSST) rate to 15%, effective July 1, 2010, to mirror the increase in the HST rate in the province, effective the same date.  

NSST is applicable to motor vehicles and other designated tangible personal property (DTPP) acquired anywhere in Canada through a private transaction for use in Nova Scotia. The NSST is payable by the purchaser or recipient of the motor vehicle or designated tangible personal property unless the transaction is specifically exempted.
