Payment Source enables 'in-person' tax payments in Canada
TORONTO--Payment Source, a leader in the Canadian payments industry, announced today a new payment option for Canadian taxpayers. Taxpayers can now visit any post office, anywhere in the country, to pay their taxes using Payment Source's proprietary Loadhub service.
"We are proud of the work we have been doing with the post office over the last decade to develop payment innovations that positively impact Canadians," said Trevor Cook, CEO of Payment Source. "By leveraging Canada Post's unparalleled retail reach we are able to offer this new service to all Canadians."
Loadhub's payment-code solution and integration into Canada Post's point-of-sale make many kinds of payment possible, all in a quick, easy and secure manner for the customer.
Taxpayers can make payments in two easy steps:
1. Visit https://payinperson.ca/cra and follow the instructions to receive a unique Loadhub payment code on a smartphone or via email to print
2. Visit any post office, present the payment code and make payment (via cash or debit) to the clerk. (There is a small service fee for each payment)
Once the payment is made, taxpayers receive a receipt as proof of the transaction. The receipt will reflect the date the taxpayer made a payment at a Canada Post location.
"Whether making online purchases, loading a mobile wallet or settling your taxes, it's important that Canadians have as many convenient options as possible. We're excited to be working with Canada Post to offer in-person cash or debit payment at any post office coast-to-coast," said George DeMarchi, President, Payment Source.
