Ontario GST/HST credit for non-residents

I'm in need of immediate assistance about the Ontario GST/HST credit for non-residents.


I've been sitting on this since December, but I have an outstanding credit on my CRA account for the GST/HST credit. I have no idea how to pay it back. I tried setting up a payment through my debit card on the CRA website, but I got to a page where it asked for an "account number". I figured it was my bank account number, but it didn't fit in the text box. I hit the help link next to the box and it said "must be in NRX123456 format". What the hell does that mean? Then, I found out you can make payments through your online banking. I excitedly went to my online banking site and "added a payee" in the bill payment section and selected "CRA NON RSDT ARREAR" or something like that, which I had seen on the CRA website and the "non rsdt" part made sense since I am a non resident. After I selected that payee, it took me to the next section and asked me, like the CRA website, what my account number was. Again, I figured it was my bank account number, but it said it was invalid. So, I hit a dead end. 


In short, what does "account number" mean? I'm frustrated to the MAX right now about this. Please help. Thank you.
