       Harmonized Sales Tax 


Effective July 1, 2010, HST will apply to electricity bills.  The HST of 13 per cent replaces the 5 per cent Goods and Service Tax (GST) already present on electricity bills.



How Harmonized Sales Tax (HST) affects your Electricity Bill

The implementation of the new HST is mandated by the Province of Ontario.  In order to calculate the HST amount, Toronto Hydro will prorate your bill based on the electricity consumed before and after July 1, 2010.
