This Article is about being charged GST twice when he imported an auto.
GST charged twice when importing auto | Wheels.ca

Q: I bought a prestige car in Utah, drove it back across the border at Queenston on July 12 and paid the 5 per cent GST at the border. On July 16, I was forced to pay an additional 13 per cent Retail Sales Tax at the provincial licensing office. Although I complained about paying the GST twice, I was told to take it up with Canada Border Services.

We have since spent an inordinate amount of time on the phone with CBS, GST Ruling, Ministry of Finance Ontario (Retail Sales Tax division, Refund unit, Service Ontario call centre), Ministry of Transportation and several other agencies

Very interesting. I'll have to watch for this if I ever bring a car in again. Is this just an Ontario/BC/Maritime thing as they are the provinces with HST or would this apply all areas of Canada?
