It seem quite a mix of info on tax refund or zero rate taxes on exports. I've had dealers tell me they have to collect tax even when shipping directly to the USA. Others have said you can get a refund at the border but that supposedly ended in 2007. Anyone here have first hand experience they want to share?

Got a yt1332 from BC. No taxes crossing the border, told the agent I had a snowblower and he waved me through. Going to apply for the sales tax refund online. The Canadian customs people said they don't do it at the border anymore. Dealer gave me a good price on the unit so they do discount in the summer.

YEAHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I love it when plan comes together. All you need now is some fluid film to coat the cross augers and the impeller paddles and the cross auger housing. You can blow all that snow back to the customs station. Another thought would be piss off the neighbors and bury the mailboxes across the road and do target practice on the local county snow plow or road grader in the dark of night ha,ha.

Looking forward to using it this winter. Runs smooth, definitely has some mass to it. Going to put my Ariens to shame- going up for sale this fall!
I bet it will shoot snow across the street into neighbor's yard!

looking at the cheapest blower, and doing currency conversion, still looks like at least $2400 retail. might be better to look for used in the USA. not sure if there is a list of older models and years available.

I am on board with the the heck with the tax return if you pay it in the first place.


If it was about money then there would be no purpose in it, other blowers would do the job if not as loved as the Yamaha is.



In my case its a 1400 miles round trip roughly. I would call the dealer and see what could be done. Whitehorse is right on the route to Anchorage and a lot of the traffic is Anch destined.


For the foreseeable future the blower is good so not an issue but yes I have pondered it and I appreciate the information.
