Pay by cheque
During the labour disruption, there may be delays in processing payments made by cheque or in person at financial institutions. The payment deadlines have not changed. Your payment date will be confirmed by the postmark or by the date of payment at a financial institution. Once your payment is processed by the CRA, your account will indicate the accurate date the payment was made.
You can make a payment to the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) with a cheque from your Canadian bank account.
Make the cheque payable to the Receiver General for Canada. Mail it with your remittance voucher to the address on the back of your voucher. The CRA will charge a fee for any dishonoured cheque.
If you do not have a remittance voucher
You can order personalized remittance vouchers and in some cases print your own. See Order remittance vouchers or payment forms.
You can also write any of the following identification details on the front memo field of your cheque:
- social insurance number,
- business number,
- non-resident withholding tax account number.
If you want to give us additional instructions indicating where you want your payment to be applied, include it on a separate sheet of paper in the mailing envelope.

How long it takes
Payments sent by mail are considered paid when they are received by the CRA. To avoid fees and interest, please make sure you pay on time.
Other ways to pay
Available payment methods depend on the type of payment you are making. See Payments to the CRA.
