I have never had to pay duty on out of country motorcycle parts purchase I ask for a label to be put on the parcel and on the declaration forms that states "Contains Only Motorcycle Parts not subject to Duty." I have had to pay gst on occasion. There is no duty on MC Tires bought in the US and brought into Canada. In the early day of Nexus (spring 2009) I lost my Nexus Card for a short period of time due to an overzealous CBS Agent in Port Roberts. This was when you had to fill out the ittle card and I think box 5 or 7 was where you put in the total value of duty free items. I politely asked to speak to his Supervisor and had him get the Duty Binders of the shelf and show me where it showed duty rates. He looked under tires and they all have duty....but if you turn over the page MC were the next section and the duty was zero. I had checked on this with a lifelong pal who has written a few books on duty charges. He is a Tax Lawyer for a large International Law Firm with a lucrative sub speciality, The story continues. My wife (not my last name)made a run down to border to pick up the rest of the tires, the same guy is in the booth, runs the same deal, charges her duty taxes and a penalty threatens to take her Nexus card and generally is a shit to her. She comes home tells me the story, I hope in the car take her paperwork and go back to the Border. Go into the Office ask for the Supervisor tell him the story have him get the binder show him, he calls in the Officer who pales when he sees me. get money back and notes removed from my wife's file with a letter for our files. We decided after that it would be better to move our US Mailbox to Blaine.....but wait there is more Things go on with no drama and then one day 5 or 6 years later I pull up on my bike to the Nexus booth. I recognize Mr Tire Duty and after I give him my verbal declaration he gives me a card to go for a secondary inspection. Not a problem for me but things are backed up and it takes about 90 minutes for the secondary. After I am cleared, I thank the Officer and ask to speak to the Officer in Charge and assure him that the matter I want to speak to the OIC about has nothing to do with him. So I go inside and wait for the OIC. He shows up nice guy and I tell him the tire story, then I say lets go outside and look in the inspection area and there are a large number of bikes waiting to go through secondary and as he looks over at the Nexus boot another bike comes directly into the secondary. I look at him and say so.... the Officer who tried to mess with my wife and I some time ago and falsely accused us of failing to pay duty appears to have transferred to Peace Arch. I looked at him and said it appears that your Officer seems be failing in his job because he is targeting only motorcyclists and not using his training and judgement to screen other vehicles. The OIC asked me to wait and did a walk around to the Officers doing Secondary came back thanked me very much for pointing this out to him and said he would tend to the matter. I learned later that "my friend " was transferred to one of the least desirable jobs with almost zero interaction with the public.
