  General Information

Two sales taxes apply to most goods and services purchased in the Province of Québec: the federal GST of 6% plus the provincial tax TVQ at 7.5%, calculated on the total after GST. On certain items, including hotel rooms and goods being brought out of the country, visitors may be eligible to reclaim the GST. More information is available in the brochure "Tax Refund for Visitors to Canada" from Revenue Canada, available at Canadian airports, border crossings and hotels, or on their web site Canada Revenue Agency. Speciality service points in downtown shopping centres also offer tax refund options.
