This is a mistake on the part of the retailer.  They've likely incorrectly coded this as a prepared meal item being $4 or under.


So would you go back to the store and say hey I think you made a mistake undercharging the taxes. Here...please be sure to remit this with your other taxes. 🙂

Never mind the $4 or under meal comment, as this is clearly a $100 purchase. My point was simply that those types of prepared meal purchases are PST exempt in Ontario, and that the merchant has incorrectly chosen the taxes that need to be applied.

 

The way I see it, this is the store's problem. If CRA decides to go through everything, the store is going to have pay those PST amounts.  

 

Going back to store to try to pay the PST would just make more work for them, and they wouldn't even get to keep any of that money.

Thanks for the 7/11 voucher. I knew they sold them but i wasnt sure on the validity. Its good to know another retailer that you can purchase an immediately loadable voucher when time is of the essence. 

 

It will also be important to find out if the Shell rumour is true or not i suspect the clerk wasnt fully trained yet but we should confirm that as i recommend them all the time..

Many stores will sell vouchers won't know it unless they check. They'll know about the bigger carrier vouchers but there's still people who've never heard of Public Mobile. Stores get these from a voucher processor and might be using the same source. Even very small stores have these occasionally. They have to know how to find the right code or where to find it.

Re: Voucher Catalogue

I've gone into stores asking for vouchers for cell phones. Get the Homer stare. Say something about cellphone minutes and oh yeah we have those which one. Say Public Mobile. Homer stare. Say just have a look in your little terminal thingy and you might find it. They say oh there it is. Never heard of 'em. How much? Oh wait they're set amounts. Whatever. Just sell me a  stupid voucher.

I've seen them at corner stores with computer printed or hand written signs saying they sell vouchers for different carriers and a few of them listed.

Is it only Public that tries to call them vouchers?  Doesn't everyone call them top ups or airtime? Voucher sounds like some type of coupon.

Re: Voucher Catalogue

@darlicious 

It is good to know that this 7-11 store does sell vouchers that are effective immediately.  The first clerk that I asked did give me the "Homer stare". (@z10user4 ) Then another employee showed her how to do it and instructed her to make sure that she's got the right cellphone provider's name. I had to repeat the words "Public Mobile" at least 3 times.

 

When I have time, I may go into another Shell station to ask about vouchers.  May be not all Shell stations sell them. May be not all Shell employees know about them.
