Default Re: Shipping to Canada

[FONT=Verdana]I have tried to find what the tax would be on shisha tobacco. The problem is there is no category for it, so they just dump it in manufactured tobacco (i.e. pipe tobacco) and tax you what the weight is on the box. There is a big difference between manufactured tobacco and shisha tobacco; I think I was reading that in a 250g box of shisha tobacco only 20% of the weight comes from the tobacco. The laws are still not clear on this and it has only been 4 years that the Canadian government has realised that shisha tobacco is in fact tobacco and not a fruit product that you can still dispute the charges and get some of your money back if you get taxed.
