Home Depot charging for tax-exempt itemsSubscribe to RSS feed

Retail giant Home Depot has been mistakenly charging customers seven per cent provincial sales tax on dozens of tax exempt items for the past year and a half, the company said Tuesday.

In a statement issued to CTV News, the company apologized to customers that may have been impacted by the error.

"We encourage customers to visit their local Home Depot store with their receipt to see if they are eligible for a refund on the PST that may have been incorrectly charged," Dan McAreavey, VP of Contract Services and Canada West Operations, wrote.

"We truly value our customers and their business."

The company says it has not benefitted financially from the error and that all PST collected from customers has been remitted to the B.C. government. (more)
