If you're eligible under the Indian Act, you can claim an HST exemption for goods and services supplied on a reserve.
Eligible residents in Ontario or on the Canadian side of the Akwesasne reserve, can also claim an exemption for qualifying goods and services acquired off a reserve. The off-reserve exemption only applies to the 8% Ontario component of the HST. Goods like mobile phones and HD PVRs, for example, as well as telecommunications services qualify for the exemption.
When claiming a tax exemption, you need to provide a copy of your Certificate of Indian Status Card issued by Indian and Northern Affairs Canada.
Heads Up! You'll need to pay the full amount of your bill, including taxes, until your application is approved. But, once it's approved, future taxes won't be applied to your account.
