Payments to CRA using your bank card

In addition to paying your taxes electronically by logging in to your online banking, you may be able to pay CRA by using your bank card, if you have ‘Interac Online’, ‘Visa Debit’, or ‘Mastercard Debit’ on your bank card.   If you do not have such a bank card, you can also pay CRA using Paypal or a credit card, but then you will pay a service fee of over 2%.

Full instructions can be found on the CRA website
