PAYMENT ARRANGEMENT


On occasion, the Canada Revenue Agency or Revenu Québec may agree to enter into payment arrangements with individuals.

If you believe that you will be unable to reimburse your income tax debt, you may be able to enter into a payment arrangement where you will be allowed to make installments to reimburse the debt.

You will be required to comply with the arrangement, failing which it could terminate.

In the event of a default on your part, legal actions could also be taken against you to recover the outstanding amount.

The consumer proposal administrator determines your true ability to reimburse your debts.

null

The administrator prepares the consumer proposal and submits it to the creditors, including the Canada Revenue Agency and Revenu Québec.

If the offer is accepted, you will then have only one single monthly payment to make to reimburse the entirety of the debts included in the consumer proposal.
