|Today marks a reduction in the GST. The federal government came through with its promise, reducing GST from 7% to 6%. Although the tax break was officially implemented today many local car dealerships have been offering the 6% GST since the tax cut announcement was made. At Craig Dunn Motor City in Portage Craig Dunn says the move was beneficial.
Although Dunn believes the tax break is a good thing he hasn't seen huge sales increases. Portage Chrysler General Manager Doug Thompson says he has seen a bit of a jump in sales, both dealers are optimistic it will be a successful summer.
