Using Your to Pay Off Tax

It’s not unusual to owe money to the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) after filing your personal tax return. But there are situations where there is a significant amount owed. This most often happens to self-employed Canadians and those who haven’t filed their returns for a few years.

When a large amount is owing to the CRA, and it has been outstanding for some time, your credit can be impacted, and there may even be liens registered against your home.

In these situations, you will find your bank’s hands are tied, and they are unable to help you, even though you’ve been a great client. However, CRA is taken very seriously by most institutional lenders.
