Definition of Harmonized Sales Tax

  1. A value-added consumption tax used in some Canadian provinces to replace the both the "Goods and Services Tax (GST)" and the "Provincial Sales Tax (PST)". The Two taxes are merged into a "Harmonized Sales Tax (HST)", which was once known in some provinces as a "Blended Sales Tax." The rules on what the HST is charged on differs from one province to the next, but generally, a PST is only charged on goods whereas the HST is charged on both goods and services.
