Paying your income tax by instalments
Instalments are periodic income tax payments that individuals have to pay to the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) on certain dates, to cover tax that they would otherwise have to pay in a lump sum on April 30 of the following year. Instalments are not paid in advance; they are paid throughout the calendar year in which you are earning the taxable income.
If you have a balance owing and want to arrange a payment plan, see Paying arrears and Payment Methods for details.
