Pay by online banking

You can pay your individual taxes to the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) through your financial institution's online banking. You can also pay business taxes online from a business bank account.

Make sure your information is accurate to help the CRA apply your payment to the intended individual or business account.

Most financial institutions let you make a payment on pre-set dates.
