Tax on (whole) Cakes??

danthediner | Jan 21, 2009 04:29 PM

I was at a certain deli in downtown Montreal earlier this month.

I wanted to buy a whole cake, but the cashier insisted on charging me tax -- both GST and PST, which I don't believe is correct.

In fact, when I got home from Montreal I contacted the GST people, who assured me that when purchasing (whole) cakes over 250grams, there is *no* GST payable.

I have contacted the restaurant to let them know, but they insist on charging the tax.

What's a guy to do?

And does anyone have any insight into the tax issue???
