Chit Chats helps connect Canadian entrepreneurs and their customers from far and wide. That’s why our goods and services are subject to federal and provincial sales tax.

Applicable sales tax will be included in the following:

  • All Canadian postage
  • Chit Chats Pickups
  • Third Party Courier Pickups
  • Drop spot access fees
  • Shipping supplies
  • Return fees for Canadian shipments
  • Fulfillment fees
  • Administrative fees

Goods and services that span international borders do not typically have sales taxes applied. This is because international customs agencies will charge separate duties and taxes.

Sales tax will not be applied to the following:

  • All U.S. and International postage
  • Chit Chats Insurance fees
  • Return fees for U.S. and International shipments

When applicable, taxes will be included in the postage cost when you create shipments in your Chit Chats account. A breakdown of the shipment fees including taxes can be found in the shipment details (right sidebar) found by clicking on the shipment.

Your recipient’s province is what determines the tax rate for postage. Taxes for other goods and services will be dependent on where they were purchased or conducted.
