You can make a payment arrangement through our TeleArrangement service by calling 1-866-256-1147. To use this service, you will need to provide your social insurance number, your date of birth, and the amount you entered on line 150 from your last return for which you received a notice of assessment. TeleArrangement is available Monday to Friday, 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., Eastern time.
We still will charge daily compound interest on any outstanding balance starting May 1, 2014, until you pay your balance in full.
Only for the 2013 tax return
You have until midnight on or before May 5, 2014, to file your 2013 income tax and benefit return and pay any balance owing. As a result of the five-day service interruption in April, interest and penalties will not be applied if you file your 2013 tax return by midnight on or before May 5, 2014.
If you or your spouse or common-law artner is self-employed, the deadline to file your 2013 income tax and benefit return is midnight on June 16, 2014, because June 15, 2014 falls on a Sunday. However, you still have to pay any balance owing on or before May 5, 2014.
If you do not deal promptly with your tax arrears, the CRA can take serious measures including legal action such as garnishing your income or your bank account or initiating other legal action such as seizing and selling your assets.
Even if you cannot pay all of your balance owing right away, file your return on time. Then you will not have to pay a penalty for filing your return after the due date. For more information, see Interest and penalties.
