I would pull over somewhere just before the border and sit there while I guzzled it all down, then head on over...........Doh!

I overheard a conversationat at a duty free store, a lady wanted to cross into Canada with more than the allowable amount. She was told the excess would be taxed at 3X the value.

If correct that would be a substantial increase from several years ago.

Where is the first campground you plan on staying when you leave Canada? Call them and ask if you can ship it there. I don't know if that would be economically feasable but just a thought.

Whatever amount of wine you end up taking into Canada, make sure and tell them it is "for personal consumption". If it is a gift, or being left in Canada, it's all taxable.
In my experience the border agents have "helped me" with this issue.

We donated $110 to Quebec Providence a couple of years ago. Believe we had 6 bottles of wine and 2 cartons of cigarettes more than we were allowed.

We are talking about taxes and duties, not penalties. I believe what you overheard was what it would cost you if you DIDNT declare it. The taxes and duties are the same for everyone, so you would just be ‘playing catch up’ to make your costs the same as anyone else importing the same stuff.

BTW, if you tell them you’re leaving with it, they can set you up for a ‘casual importer refund’. They document what you are bringing in, then on the way out with it you apply for the refund.

JaxDad, Good to know and it sounds like a update to the in-transient policy that I posted about.

Perhaps someone knows the restrictions/limits for this policy.
