I have prepared my tax returns for both 2011 and 2012, I didn't expect to pay on either but as it turns out I owed quite a bit for 2011 and some for 2012!! What is the best next step? Split what I can pay on both returns (won't be the full amount)? The CRA website is no help at all

MyVirtualCPA :

Hello, how are you today?

MyVirtualCPA :

The CRA will allow you to set up a payment arrangement after you have tried to borrow money to pay the tax debt or rearrange your affairs.

MyVirtualCPA :

According to the CRA Web site If you cannot pay your balance owing on or before April 30, 2013, we will accept a payment arrangement only after you have reasonably tried to get the necessary funds by borrowing or re-arranging your financial affairs. If the CRA agrees that you are unable to make a full payment, an agent can develop a plan with you to help you pay your taxes. Call us at 1-888-863-8657 to discuss a payment arrangement. Our agents are available Monday to Friday (except holidays) from 7:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m., Eastern time.

MyVirtualCPA :

If you can pay the entire amount for one of the tax years, I would do so

MyVirtualCPA :

Then, if you can borrow funds to pay the tax do so

MyVirtualCPA :

If not, then contact the CRA at the phone number listed above to make payment arrangements with them.
