good thing you laughed... if you'd kept a straight face i'da come over there and kicked your a$$! hahaha! of course there's no way to get them to stop. it's most certainly a tax-grab, and when's the last time you knew a government to ungrab something?Originally posted by airbalancer@Mar 12 2004, 05:27 PM
Do you think we could get the government to stop this. lol.
when do they go by the red book value? i bought a car a few years back... paid $1200, but when i went to transfer the title i claimed i paid $200 (i know, i know!). the agent didn't bat an eye, and took my $20 fee. how did i get away with that? he didn't even ask for a recipt or proof that i paid $200.Originally posted by Rex Raider@Mar 12 2004, 06:31 PM
That Red Book value really screws the buying public.
ah thanks. makes sense now. the car was 16 years old. note to self... only buy used cars 10 years old and older!Originally posted by Rex Raider@Mar 12 2004, 07:33 PM
Depends on the age of the car. If it's more than 10 years, they go by whatever you tell them. Under 10 years, they go by Red Book (at least in Quebec).
Red Book, for those that don't know, is FULL RETAIL price for used cars. It doesn't reflect mileage or anything like that. I don't think cars EVER sell for Red book value.
guess that's all one can do... though those promises don't hold much water. the GST is still around, after all... thanks jean!Originally posted by markform@Mar 15 2004, 01:36 AM
Yes, you are getting ripped off.
The problem is, people vote these evil politicans into office under the premise of more government services.
In the long run, I only vote for politicans who promise to cut taxes and cut spending. The rest of them should all be burnt at the stake.
