Experience Dominica – The Nature Island: Dominica Vacations | Exotic Vacations | Honeymoon Destination

Dominica weekly is a personal weblog about the nature island of Dominica.


When into whitchurch IGA Supercenter today on my lunch break to pick-up a few much-needed items. You will be surprise to know what Ec$50.00 can buy at Whitchurch IGA. I pickup eleven items, the subtotal came up to EC$45.57, and 15 % VAT-$5.70 was charged bring my total to Ec$51.27. Observe that the only two un-tax items are the Bridel milk-$5.27 and white sugar-$2.33, which have an X next to their prices. But I was taxed for ripe bananas, maybe these were special imported Banana…who knows.

Bill from a simple shopping

Sometimes it just amazes me how much we pay for food and basic household items. I mean don’t get me wrong I’m not against the Value Added Tax, just that you will be surprise to see what you’re taxed on.
