Payment vouchers

We have two common personalized remittance vouchers that we may send with your statements or notices:

These forms are available only in paper format due to technical requirements.

We will send you the appropriate vouchers based on your account status and needs. For vouchers, go to:

If you are a new corporation making its first payment or if you need to start making instalment payments, you need to order Form RC160, Interim Payments Remittance Voucher, or make an interim payment electronically.

You will not receive Form RC160 for your next instalment payment unless you make the current payment.

Note

Financial institutions will not accept photocopied remittance vouchers.

If you make a payment with a cheque that your financial institution does not honour, including a payment on which you put a stop payment, we will charge you an administrative fee.

If you are making a payment under Part XII.3 of the Income Tax Act (tax on investment income of life insurers), use Form T901 – Remittance Voucher. This form is available only in paper format.

Form RC159, Amount Owing Remittance Voucher

Use Form RC159 to make payments on an existing debt or to make an advance deposit for an anticipated reassessment.

When using this payment voucher to make an advance deposit, clearly indicate that it is an advance deposit and include the tax year-end for which the advance deposit is intended.

If you are making an advance deposit for multiple tax years, include a list of the individual tax years for which you are expecting a reassessment and the amount to be held for each year.

Form RC159 can also be used to pay tax under Parts IV, IV.1, and XIV of the Income Tax Act.

Do not use this form for current instalment payments.

Form RC160, Interim Payments Remittance Voucher

Use Form RC160 only to make interim payments for a tax year-end for which we have not processed a return.

Form RC160 will show the remittance period-end, that is, your monthly or quarterly instalment payment due date, not the tax year-end.

After all monthly or quarterly interim payments are made for the current year (for example, tax year-end 2017-12-31), you will get the first Form RC160 for the next year (for example, tax year-end 2018-12-31).

If you are making one payment for taxes under different parts of the Income Tax Act, tell us how to allocate each amount to make sure we credit your accounts correctly.
