Had the pleasure of paying a $31.14 markup 'Fee' today on $55 of beer... This is the first time I've had to pay anything on bringing beer back, but this is also the first time I've gone to the States just for a couple hours and brought back alcohol. Have gone for just 1 day and brought back 12 bombers no problem. It was interesting to get the receipt and see how much actual taxes duties and markups are (in BC at least) Here's the numbers Quantity: .0409 HLT (8x12oz + 4x22oz) Value of Beer: $55 Duty: $1.28 Provincial Liquor Markup: $31.14 GST/HST: $6.79 I think the provincial markup fee is ridiculous! Is it this bad in every province?
