    Buying a used sled...

    Hello!! I am super excited to say that I am buying myself a used 2014 Summit X 800!!
    #1) The 6 just doesn't quite cut it anymore, and #2) WHY THE HECK NOT!!

    I've never bought used before, so I'm not too sure about the tax, or those new ICBC rules for off-road vehicles... So what do I need to know! Any tips? I live in BC and the sled is in BC too. THANKS~

    Private sale you'll pay 12% at time of registration. Dealer sale you'll pay 12% at time of purchase. Registration fee is $48 one time charge per owner.

    Dumb thing is, every sale they get the 12 %

    Not just the first 12 % when new

    It seems like and it is a rip off paying the 12% tax but that's what it is.

    The money goes into public coffers to pay for roads , schools, hospitals etc. so "they" is actually you.
    Characterize people by their actions and you will never be fooled by their words.
    A persons actions will tell you everything you need to know.

    So, is this 12% an HST? Cause if it isn't, there should be no way that the province should be able to collect GST twice or more.

    It is bull that they can double dip on taxes, but thankfully taxes will be the last thing I'm thinking of once I get this baby home!!

    Thanks for all the help guys! Time for a ROAD TRIP!
