Sales taxes on five cent plastic bags likely

Toronto has ordered retailers to charge customers 5 cents each for plastic shopping bags in June, and some store owners have been asking whether they’ll have to charge sales tax.

Stores that have jumped the gun on Toronto’s policy and are already charging customers for shopping bags are charging sales tax.
