Continuing Global’s ‘expert examination’ of HST, Doug Herbert provided this from Sun Peaks on the July 31 6pm Vancouver News Hour:
“The difference in price for a secondary residence pre-HST and post-HST is dramatic. An Australian recently bought a unit in this building behind me for $777,000. He paid just over $93,000 in HST. If he bought it pre-HST, he would only have paid $52,000, a difference of $54,000.”
Accuracy. What the hell, too much bother!
