Pay PST through electronic funds transfer and wire payments

You can pay your PST account, including Municipal and Regional District Tax, by an electronic funds transfer (EFT) or wire payment.

To avoid late payment charges, your return and payment must be submitted on or before the due date.

Note: Some financial institutions charge a fee for processing EFTs and wire payments, which may be deducted from your payment amount. Ensure your financial institution does not deduct charges from the payment amount due as this will result in an underpayment.
