Paying your income tax by instalments

Important notice

You may receive a call from the CRA to remind you of the June 15th quarterly income tax instalment payment due date. For more information, see Automated telephone message.

Instalments are recurring income tax payments that people have to pay on certain dates. These are to cover tax that you would normally have to pay in a lump sum on April 30 of the following year. Instalments are not paid in advance; they are paid during the calendar year in which you are earning the taxable income.

Notice to the reader

If you have a balance owing and want to arrange a payment plan, see Payment arrangements for details.
