Choose the electronic payment method that's right for you:

Online banking - Through your financial institution's online banking, add the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) as a payee and look for the "tax instalments" payment option.

Debit card - The CRA's My Payment service lets you pay with your Visa® Debit or Interac® online debit card through participating financial institutions.

Pre-authorized debit - You can set up a tax payment in advance. You choose the bank account, the amount, and the date or dates of the transaction.

Credit card - You can use a third-party service provider that offers additional payment methods, including credit cards.

Carefully enter your social insurance number as your account number so the CRA can apply your payment to the intended account.
