Report and pay PST using eTaxBC
Last updated: February 1, 2023
Once you have registered to collect provincial sales tax (PST) you can file and pay your tax returns online using eTaxBC. eTaxBC is the easiest and fastest way to file your returns and pay your taxes.
To file and pay through eTaxBC, you must first enrol for access if you don’t have an existing eTaxBC account.
Once you enrol for access to eTaxBC, or if you already have an eTaxBC account, log on to your account to file and pay your PST and municipal and regional district tax (MRDT) (if applicable).
You must report and pay your taxes in Canadian dollars.
If you provide accommodation in more than one jurisdiction that collects the MRDT, eTaxBC is the only place where you can consolidate all your MRDT accounts under one return and one payment.
If your business makes $1.5 million or more in total annual national sales or leases, it's mandatory to file tax returns and pay tax electronically.
Starting April 1, 2022, all boat and aircraft PST collectors will be able to enter all of their monthly boat or aircraft transactions offline on a specially formatted Excel spreadsheet and then upload it electronically to their eTaxBC account each month.
Instructions for using and submitting this conveniently formatted spreadsheet can be found by logging on to your eTaxBC account and navigating to “File boats & air” schedule in the “I Want To…” section.
