A tax refund for iPod owners in Canada

canada ipod shuffle tatooThe year-long levy on digital music players imposed by the Copyright Board of Canada came to an end in December 2004. If you happened to buy an iPod in Canada during that year that the tax was in effect, however, you paid an extra $15-$25 for it. Apple Canada would like to see to it that you get a refund.

"Apple is pleased that the Supreme Court of Canada let stand a lower court ruling that blank media levies on iPods are invalid, and will shortly announce a claims process so consumers can request a refund for the levies they paid," the company said in a release.

Further details on how to apply for the refund are expected soon.

Thanks, Wader!
