Making Revenue Tax (PST) and Environment Tax Payments

 

Transition to the Harmonized Sales Tax (HST)

Effective April 1, 2013, the Province of Prince Edward Island implemented the harmonized sales tax (HST).  HST replaced the provincial sales tax (PST @ 10%) and the federal goods and services tax (GST @ 5%).

Under HST, the provincial portion is nine percent (9%) and the federal portion is five percent (5%) for a combined rate of 14%.  

Please refer to the Canada Revenue Agency website for assistance with the application of HST in Prince Edward Island, or call 1-800-959-5525.

 

 

The provincial revenue tax (PST) was replaced by the HST on April 1, 2013.  However,  revenue tax (PST) filings and payments must be remitted on goods and services provided prior to April 1, 2013.
