Why is HST information so difficult to find?

I started a discussion on HST over the summer with the intention of making regular posts.  However, life seemed to get in the way and it died a quick death.  This last week I was trying to find whether Nova Scotia had PST or HST and the rate which at which it was to be applied.  I was astounded as to how difficult it was to locate the information.
And so the table below has been created….This table is current as of September 30, 2010 and shows the general rates of provincial sales taxes or HST for most purchases.  (Every government likes to make exceptions to their rules)
The current GST rate is 5%.
Hope that it helps and will save some of you for searching for the same information!
