I think it calculates tax based on the residential address of your PSN account.

 

If you're in Quebec then it should be roughly 10% QST +  5% GST = 15%.

 

If you're in Ontario it should be 8% PST + 5% GST = 13%.

 

Not sure why you think you would only pay GST. You pay PST/QST on everything you buy in physical stores too.

I totally agree we should be paying taxes, I simply want them to be calculated properly. My beef was that they were not charged on the proper amount.
 

Up to now, I was not paying anything at all, and was only aware of the GST being implemented on July 1, so I was expecting 5%, not 13%. Turns out maybe there was a “good” bug in the system?

Ontario has harmonized sales tax. The provincial tax is fused with the GST.
