HST on Drive Clean Test?

I just did the Drive Clean test and I was charged HST so the total was $33.90 instead of $30. This doesn't seem right to me but I couldn't find anything to say whether tac is charged on the fee or not. Does anyone have any idea?

Fees
The cost of a Drive Clean test depends on:

the type of vehicle (light-duty or heavy-duty)
the type of test (first-time test or a re-test)
Light-duty vehicles

Up to $30 (plus tax)

Heavy-duty vehicles

Each facility sets its own fees. Applicable taxes are extra.

Re-test fees (light-duty vehicles)

Up to $17.50 per test, if it is done at the same facility that performed the initial test.

$30 (plus tax) if the re-test is performed:

more than 120 days after the initial test
after 2 re-tests at $17.50 each
at a facility other than where you had the original test

How can being charged HST be a surprise to you? You pay HST on everything. :facepalm:

When you die you pay HST for people moving your body - as Pete says, this is not a surprise

Are you really that dumb...and yes, you pay HST on funeral costs.
Wake up and smell your taxes paid or are you a child and do not know what the Harmonized Sales Tax is?
