If you do not present ICBC with a completed Motor Vehicle Appraisal Form (FIN 320) when you register your motor vehicle. You have 30 days from the date of registration to obtain an appraisal of the retail value and submit it to the Ministry of Finance along with an Application for Refund of PST Paid on a Motor Vehicle (FIN 355/MV). For your refund claim to be considered, the purchase price and the appraised value must both be less than the average wholesale value of the motor vehicle. If the appraised value and the purchase price are both less than the average wholesale value of the motor vehicle, the Ministry of Finance will calculate PST due on the purchase price or the appraised value of the motor vehicle, whichever is greater. If you are eligible, the Ministry will issue you a refund for the difference between the PST you paid on the average wholesale value and the PST due as calculated on the new information you provide. The Ministry of Finance will not consider refund claims received after 30 days from the registration date.
The forms need to be submitted to:
Ministry of Finance
