  • ePay is a fast, easy, convenient and secure way to pay your corporate or commodity taxes using the Government Tax Payment and Filing Service, which has been established at most financial institutions. You must make arrangements with your bank first before you can use this service. Once it has been set up, you can pay your corporate or commodity taxes using your financial institution’s on-line banking platform.
