Québec income tax return
To determine the amount to which you are entitled, you and your spouse must file income tax returns each year with Revenu Québec, even if one or both of you has no income to report.
We take into account the family income for the preceding year. Each year, in July, we recalculate the amount to which you are entitled, based on the income reported for the preceding year. To avoid delays, you must file your income tax return with Revenu Québec no later than 30 April of each year.
Revenu Québec informs the Régie of your conjugal status on 31 December of the reference year and provides information about your family's income.
Important! Child assistance payments and the Supplement for Handicapped Children are not taxable. Consequently, the Régie does not send out tax slips for those benefits.
What does "family income" mean?
Family income is the amount indicated on line 275 of your Québec income tax return. If you have a spouse, his or her income is added to yours.
If you were living outside Québec
For new residents who have not filed a Québec income tax return, a notice of assessment from the Canada Revenue Agency or a statement of income is required.
