Educational Electronic Device PST Tax Exemption and Tax Refund or Credit

2013.7
Provincial/Federal Policy and Processes
Active

The BCCPAC work with the Ministry of Education, Ministry of Advanced Education and Ministry of Finance to eliminate the PST on electronic devices essential for the New Education Plan, as outlined in the Ministry of Education’s 21st Century Learning Plan. Devices such as, but not limited to, laptops, Ipads, tablets, computers, notebooks, E-readers, scientific and graphing calculators would be categorized as “school supplies” when being used for educational purposes for children aged 5 to 19 years of age. In addition to the PST exemption, we request that a tax credit or tax rebate be offered to offset the additional cost of technology.
