Or alternatively, you can go to Washington state and have no sales tax on the purchase from there. Apparently state legislation says that the HST is not a sales tax but rather a "value added tax" which means the usual state tax they charge (I think 6.1%) is waived for out of state residents. There's an article out on this a couple days ago online... I know cuz Ontario's doing the same thing and doing HST so if I want to hustle over to Washington, we're apparently exempt from their sales tax too.
