    I find when I mailorder from the US, if it is shipped by USPS there is a 50/50 chance of having taxes collected on the package. So it's pretty cost effective to just take your chances having it mailed. I've had led kits arrive tax free, and most recently the $400 tron ramp mod showed up tax free.

    PBL will ship USPS. I've never ordered from Marco, but yeah, I would never use UPS or Fedex because you get nailed for sure.

    Quoted from SteveP3:

    You guys outside the Atlantic provinces have it good on taxes, don't ya? Only the GST?
    I always get nailed for the HST (since we combined both taxes), 15%. Ugh.

    We have 13% HST in Ontario. But my strategy with regular mail works, a lot of packages show up tax free just sitting there.

    the nice thing about getting starburst to order parts is when it is just some small stuff. I had them special order 5 retro leds from cointaker for me, just had to pay for the 5 leds + tax. Normally I would have ordered far more from cointaker to make it worth it.
