Payment due dates

Most individuals who have to pay tax instalments for 2024 are required to pay by these payment due dates:

  • March 15
  • June 15
  • September 15
  • December 15

When a due date falls on a Saturday, a Sunday, or a public holiday recognized by the CRA, the CRA considers your payment to be paid on time if it is received on the next business day.

If your instalment payments are late or insufficient, you may have to pay instalment interest and penalty charges.

Exceptions to the quarterly due dates

Farmers and fishers

If your main source of income is self-employment income from farming or fishing, you only have one instalment payment due date per year.

You will receive an instalment reminder in November and must make your payments in the current year by:

  • December 31

Deceased person

If an individual who has to pay tax by instalments dies during the year, instalment payments due on or after the date of death do not have to be paid.
