The British Columbia government’s taxation of private individuals selling their personal motorized vehicles is a sign of blatant disregard for the rights of private citizens and a prime example of an overreaching tax regime. The private citizens of British Columbia, at the present moment, are required by law to collect a 12% tax on behalf of the government from the transaction of the sale of their personal chattel. These are private citizens, not acting in commerce; without a GST registrant #, that are being forced to act as the collector in a transaction that never should have government interference.
The BC Libertarian Party is not asking for a simple reduction in the tax burden through a reduced scale in the formula used to determine the tax burden. Nor any other tax reduction minimum response. The Libertarian Party of BC is demanding a complete rescinding of the section of the Provincial Sales Tax Act as it pertains to involvement of the private citizen in selling their personal motorized vehicles.
