I was wondering if you take extra liquor above your limit do you end up paying duty on all your amount or just the 2 extra bottles into BC. I know you pay 100% over the price of the bottles
Thanks for any information

My bill was only on the amount that I was over and duty ran at 50% of the declared value.

Duty is payable on the excess.
A word of caution - don't even THINK about not declaring - I watched a family car get confiscated when an extra undeclared bottle was discovered during a secondary inspection.

Duty??? I think not. We have free trade.

Unless it was liquor from a foreign source you pay EXCISE TAX, then sales tax. In the case of some provinces, Ontario, for example there is a "border crossing fee" .... in Ontario's case $15.00 a bottle.

Thanks for the quick answers-when I phoned a few years ago they told me it came to 150% of the price of the bottle for BC. but I wasn't sure if included all your liquor when over the limit. Nice to know it doesn't.

So why are the stores at the border called "Duty free" then [emoticon]

Because the carry products NOT MADE IN THE USA ....

It costs money to change the sign and as this thread proves most of us don't understand that the concept of "free trade" applies to us, as well as business.

There are still hudreds if not thousands of items from the USA that are subject to duty. Sometimes they are countervailing duties and sometimes just very minimal duties. But they exist. There are also items that are not allowed due to marketing boards. Free Trade is like Reality Show. Very few countries have REAL free trade. Heck , in Canada we do not have free trade between provinces. Milk cannot cross borders without permits. Wine cannot be taken from one province to another.

....except for the ENTIRE EU (that is: MOST of Western Europe): border crossing formalities have vanished entirely. THAT is "free trade". What we have in North America (the NAFTA: Mexico, USA, Canada) is utter BS. There IS NO free trade in North America entre the countries actually making up North America. We never had it. It will NEVER exist.

Imagine being able to drive from Saskatchewan to the Guatemala border without seeing a border station? That is what Europe has; this will never happen here on this side of the Pond. Never. Not in 10 years, 50 years, or in a Century.
