How much were those products though? I'll prolly have the invoice and everything but do you think the I'll get taxed because of the $500 price tag?
It's more likely you'll get taxed based on your high declaration paired with no exemption (don't try to work around this, you'd be taking a huge risk). Logically, taxing is revenue for the government, so they'd be more inclined to tax someone with a large value of goods coming in rather than someone with a smaller amount (of which it's not "worth it" to do the paperwork).
The only thing you have going for you (granted these goods were made in the U.S.) is that there is no duty for sports equipment, just HST. That means you're only eligible to get taxed up to 12% of your declared value.
Now, this all means nothing... because I don't work for the CBSA, and I also don't decide how lucky you are that day.
