Payment plan calculator

You can use the online payment plan calculator to work out a payment plan you can afford. You can also use it to find out how quickly you can pay off a tax debt and how much interest you’ll be charged. The longer you take to pay off your debt, the more it will cost you in interest.

Once you have worked out a suitable payment scenario based on your circumstances, you can use it as a guide to set up a payment plan.

You can’t use this calculator for super debts.
