Duties on TV purchased in US and shipped to Canada using CrossBorder Pickups?

HI everyone - i want to buy a TV in the US and have it shipped to Canada via Cross Border Pickups. they play it by the book (which is great) so i know i will pay HST and duties. Before i make the purchase i wanted to know what duties i would be hit up for. based on what i see online from CBSA, it seems like the answer is around 6% but i wanted to try and confirm that before i make the plunge. thanks.

Where did u get the 6% from? Here is the duty/tax estimator: http://cbsa.gc.ca/travel-voyage/dte-acl ... l-eng.html

If u plug in the info, there is no duty on televisions made outside NAFTA. Also, other RFDers have reported that they were not charged duty on televisions, IIRC.

Didn't use that calculator. Will try it. Got my information more informally trough web channels. Even better!!
