Canada 5% GST on car-sharing

Yesterday's Canadian budget proposed extending GST to all private car-sharing services.

The measure will require drivers working through Uber or similar services to register and charge 5% GST on any fees for journeys.  Currently, they can avoid GST if they earn less than C$30,000 per annum.

Taxi companies already charge federal GST, and the budget measure is a change in definition to bring private providers into the tax net.
