If you purchase something while travelling outside the country, be honest when you declare it at the border.

 

The Canada Border Services Agency says it isn't worth it to try and save on the costs.                                          

 

Spokesman Sean Best says it's best to tell the truth about what you're bringing back into Canada.

For example, on August 10th, a man declared a vehicle to be worth $5,000, when it was actually worth $15,000.

 

He paid $7,500 in penalties, when it would have only been $750 had he declared the correct amount.
