Tax - PST
British Columbia customers
If you are a qualifying farmer, you may be exempt from paying PST on some farm equipment and other goods.
Help us help you to avoid paying unnecessary PST charges by learning about whether you are a qualifying farmer by reading this PST Bulletin.
If you are a qualifying farmer, to purchase or lease specifically listed farm equipment or other goods exempt from PST, at or before the time of sale, give your supplier either:
- A completed Certificate of Exemption - Farmer (FIN 458). You can make future purchases of specifically listed farm equipment or other goods exempt from PST from us bases on the same certificate if the information is still correct.
- your BC Farmer Identity Card, provided it has not expired.
Once filled in, please take a photo, scan, or mail the completed form to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or at the mailing address in our Contact Us page.
