HST exemptions or rebates for Ontario

While the Harmonized Sales Tax (HST) generally applies to cannabis goods or services, purchases of most types of recreational cannabis are not eligible for the Ontario First Nations HST point of sale rebate. There are a few exemptions to the HST in Ontario. An HST exception implies the purchaser won’t be charged the provincial part of the tax, for example, basic groceries, some medications, kid car and then some. If any of these things are purchased on a reserve, an HST tax isn’t applied at all. This exemption brings the HST from 13% down to 5%.
