The CAO’s online returns filing system is designed to make the returns filing process easy. If you have questions, please refer to the CAO’s Guide to Filing Returns and Paying Assessments:
You will be presented with your corporation’s invoice for the assessment amounts for the 2019-2020 year after you file your return. You can either pay the invoice online (through Interac Online or using a credit card) or by sending us a cheque, certified cheque, or money order.
