payments?

Let me explain. For the last few years, I've received an income tax refund (usually under 100 bucks). The refund has been directly deposited into my bank account. I signed up for this service several years ago.

For the first time, in many years, I had a balance owing (120 bucks). I've filed my return electronically with CRA. Will this balance owed be automatically withdrawn from my bank account?

I've gone to my netfile account, the assessment has been completed. When I check to see my balance it says: 2009 Balance: 122 debit.

The word "debit" leads me to believe that the balance owed will be "debited" from my bank account. But, this has not happened yet.

Anyone know if payments for balances owed are automatically withdrawn, just like refunds are deposited?

Thanks for any insight you may have.

No, they are not automatically withdrawn.

However, you can set up a CRA "bill payment" which is pretty easy to do. Then you just "pay your tax bill". Very easy.
Thanks very much Four Pillars. I noticed that on CRA's home page. Now I just have to do it before the end of the week!

What's funny is that my assessment is dated May 3rd. Huh?

Again, thanks.

Worked like a charm. Just paid my balance. Thanks Four Pillars. I had no idea it would be that easy.
