Question American Duty

I know Americans get a break on the currency exchange but I was wondering what percentage of duty is applied (if any) when taking a new trailer across the border into the states?

Hi Len, fortunately for us Yanks it's zip, zilch & zero That's why Escape delivers it to Sumas so one would not have to seek a refund of CA duty after returning home.

We pay a sales tax to our state and that differs state to state. No duty.

Thanks Rossue. Sounds like a real bargain.

The exchange-rate is great for US buyers; the "escape " from the duty is nothing new.

Love the bear- reminds me of our mascot here in La Canada de Los Osos.

Thanks Cathy. Our provincial tax also differs between provinces.

Here are some more "oso" pictures Rossue. Next year we hope to see more of them but this time in our Escape.

Wow- great shots of the Great Grizzled One. Only been lucky enough to see one near lodge at Grand Teton. Any Moose with palmate antlers in your repotoire? Saw some during a 1976 trip but in the last six have been skunked.

My state sales tax had me writing a check for $1900.00USD. When I do my taxes, I think it can be counted towards my deductions.

Generally there is no duty or other tariff on products crossing the Canada-U.S. border (in either direction) if they were made in either of our countries, due to the North American Free Trade Agreement. Since Escapes are made in Canada, there is no duty to bring them into the U.S.
