I have a question regarding being taxed on items. I live in Canada, say if I buy an electronic item online from liquidation or even eBay; if the item is coming outside of Canada like from US or any other country. Will i be taxed on it? I am new to eBay and SaleHoo so I am not really sure and wanted to be informed before i bought anything. :?:

I don't think you will be taxed on but you will be responsible for all Custom Fees.....

This can also be based on the seller. Sometimes the seller will include all duty fees in the shipping price. But generally you are responsible for these fees. Consider this when buying from a US seller. Even if you buy 1 item you are still improting products in from another country and it can cost you extra.
