Online taxing issues

From Checkpoint, 6:26 pm on 4 November 2016

An online shopper is questioning what happens to the GST and Customs duty charged on purchases from overseas when the goods are returned. Barb bought two items of clothing from the United States. She understood she had to pay the GST and Customs duty but wasn't so pleased to learn that when the items didn't fit, she wasn't entitled to get the GST back.
