Moving from BC to Alberta

Hi, 

 

I am moving from BC to Alberta. I was wondering whether there's a method to adjust the sales tax keeping the same number? 

 

Thank you.

I am not positive but I believe taxes are based on the area code and what Province it is from, is how the tax is applied on plans.  So I don't think you can keep a BC number and only pay Alberta Taxes.

@Suds Tax is charged based on your area code as mentioned above. However, you can buy Public Mobile voucher from Mobile Shop, Wow mobile, London drugs or Walmart and they will charge you AB tax. Use voucher to make a payment before your renewal date Smiley Happy

@NDesai @ShawnC13 : Thanks for both your replies Smiley Happy 

 

So to confirm to auto pay as usual and pay the AB tax, I'll have to change the number itself correct? 

Re: Moving from BC to Alberta

@Suds, yes, if you wish to continue using AutoPay by having it charge your credit card, you'll need to change your number to one based in Alberta.

 

As @NDesai mentioned, you can keep your BC number if you wish, by purchasing vouchers at local stores, with cash or credit card, if you top up before your AutoPay comes out.  You would still retain the $2/30-day reward.

 

Note - having an  out of province number for AB will be a charge for anyone calling (they would pay) if they do not have Canada-Wide calling (ie Doctor, Dentist, employer, neighbours).
