Specific Duty on New Tires to Increase on July 1, 2023
In the Budget Speech of March 21, 2023, the Minister of Finance of Québec announced that the specific duty on new tires would increase on July 1, 2023, in part to help ensure the continuity of the Programme québécois de gestion intégrée des pneus hors d'usage (integrated scrap tire management program) administered by the Société québécoise de récupération et de recyclage (RECYC-QUÉBEC).
Since the cost of processing scrap car and truck tires varies according to their diameter, the specific duty of $3 will be increased to better reflect that fact. Thus, as of July 1, 2023, the specific duty on new tires will be increased to $4.50 for car tires and $6 for truck tires. The method for collecting, reporting and remitting the specific duty will stay the same.
See the table below for the amount of the specific duty on each tire with a rim diameter of 62.23 cm (24.5 in) or less in relation to its overall diameter.
|Overall tire diameter||Specific duty per new tire||Application date|
|83.82 cm (33 in) or less||$4.50||July 1, 2023|
|Over 83.82 cm (33 in) but not exceeding 123.19 cm (48.5 in)||$6.00||July 1, 2023|
|123.19 cm (48.5 in) or less||$3.00||Until June 30, 2023|
