Free Black Book Value & ICBC Tax Calculation for Used Cars in BC

In British Columbia, most private vehicle sales are subject to a 12% Provincial Sales Tax (PST), collected by an ICBC insurance broker when the buyer registers the vehicle. This tax is based on whichever is higher: the actual purchase price or the average wholesale value from the Canadian Black Book. BC uses the Canadian Black Book for auto sales tax assessments, whereas other regions might use different sources, like the Kelley Blue Book or the Canadian Red Book, for similar tax calculations.
