I am the renter and will be renting for more than 6 months. My landlord is telling me that I am required to pay tax on my rent for the first 6 months and then no tax. Other people have told me there is no tax to be paid by the renter if more than 6 months. Any help to clarify this would be appreciated
Retired and loving it

The landlord appears to be trying to pass any tax liability on to you. This topic has been recently discussed at: //ambergriscaye.com/forum/ubbthreads.php/topics/324248/Rental_Condo_Owners_Being_Flee.html#Post324248
Moose Keep an open mind and something good may fall in.
GST is only required if rental revenue grosses more than $75,000 BZ per year. Hotel Tax is required if your lease is less than 6 months. I have never heard of a tenant having to pay the business tax of 3%, but I suppose anything is negotiable.
