After you file your tax return - Personal income tax
Reminder: The CRA has resumed its work to address taxpayer debt. Benefit and credit payments and tax refunds may be applied to pay down outstanding balances. If your debt repayment causes significant financial hardship, please contact the CRA directly to discuss your options – even if you have a payment plan in place already.
Learn more about how specific benefits will be impacted at canada.ca/balance-owing.
Get your notice of assessment, how to pay a balance owing, check the status of your refund, and how to make a change to your tax return after it has been assessed.
