    If you can't get rid of it, I have a suggestion for you. A couple years ago I had about 10 tons left over, and didn't have a place to keep it for the summer, so I contacted the city where I live, and donated to them. They gave me a tax reciept, and I was able to deduct the full price, plus a delivery charge on my taxes. It's just a thought.

    Isn't that a double dip? You're going to deduct the purchase price as supplies/materials on your Schedule-C.

    ?

    yeah thats my whole angle because deducting that 500 dollars in salt as a loss will make all the difference in the world at the end of the year? hell might even get money back lol you caught me can't pull anything over on you guys. alright guys heres the deal don't feel like moving it at all you bring truck, trailer, rental car with big trunk with optional insurance plan whatever and i'll load you for free need it gone. if nobody steps up by next week i'll do what i usually do and give it away to rumpke's salt bin because i'm sure they're hurting these days lol

    It can't be that bad.....

    We pay SS, Medicare, and State & Federal taxes on money we earn. Then we pay sales tax on the stuff we buy, plus ANNUAL excise tax if it's a motor vehicle. Invest the money, pay taxes when you haul it out. Registration, inspection, license fees are basically taxes. And have you ever seen a cell phone bill from down here?

    EVERYTHING is cheaper in the US than Canada.

    The 13% HST (Harmonized Sales Tax) is supposed to replace our 5% GST and 8% PST. Sounds fine EXCEPT that not everything got both taxes. Now it does. For example, snowplowing used to be 5%, now will be 13%...

    Its nothing but another tax grab. That's the mild way to put it.

    For a license plate.
