What if you have a balance due?

The EFILE program will be open for transmissions on February 15, 2016, until January 20, 2017, for the electronic filing of your clients' 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015 personal income tax and benefit returns.

You can file your return early and make your payment later. As long as you file your return and pay by April 30, we won't charge interest on your balance owing. When the due date falls on a Saturday, a Sunday, or a public holiday recognized by the CRA, we consider your payment to be paid on time and your return to be filed on time if we receive it or if it is postmarked on the next business day.

If you have to make a payment, go to Make a payment for your payment options.

Note
If your balance owing is less than $2, you do not have to make a payment.
