Post-dated Cheque

You can pay your taxes with a cheque post dated to the tax due date. The payment is not cashed at your bank until the date of the cheque. Cheques must be received by the tax due date in order to avoid the 10% penalty. Post marks on envelopes are not acceptable as the payment received date, so please allow time for delivery and processing. Post dated cheques should be identified in some way (highlight the date) so that they are not inadvertently processed as a current item.
