GST is a government tax on imported goods that has been used to cut the prices of imported goods in countries such as Australia, Canada, and the United Kingdom.
GST rates are based on the percentage of the value of the goods that have been taxed, with the lowest rates being charged on products with lower export values.
The US Department of Commerce (USDOC) has released the results of a survey that asked people whether they would prefer an education institution that charges a higher tax rate, or an institution that does not charge a tax.
The survey asked people about the “education quality” of the institution, as well as whether they prefer a higher education or an education with a lower tax rate.
A total of 5,716 people responded to the survey.
Of those, 2,634 chose a higher educational institution (16.2 percent) and 1,894 chose an education that is not taxed (10.5 percent).
Of those choosing an education without a tax, 478 chose a lower educational institution.
