My wifes Marauder 250 beginner bike showed something like 9 owners (so 10 including her, and 11 now since we sold it) on the UVIP.If you wish to get mad at something, how about this.
In 2000 the original owner bought the bike from a dealer for a certain amount and paid PST on that amount.
In 2005 he sold the bike for a lower amount and the 2nd owner paid PST on that amount.
In 2010 he sold the bike to the third owner and that owner now had to pay HST.
In 2015 the fourth owner had to pay the HST again.
That's the same vehicle being taxed four times.
And we just put up with it.
Yeah, It's BS that they've collected "taxes" on each and every transfer.
Up until a few years ago at least you used to only pay the PST (no the GST) on a private sale vehicle whereas only dealerships had to charge both, but then the HST came along and that savings went away...so private sale pays the same as a dealer transaction now.
