Record Staff

Revenu Quebec is reminding citizens of the province that the deadline to submit their income declarations either electronically or by mail for the 2019 tax year is June 1, by 11:59 p.m.
As of last Friday the government office reported having received 5,308,000 declarations, 4,721,000 of which were submitted electronically. As of May 27, roughly 64 per cent of citizens had already received their tax returns, with an additional 29 per cent owing the government money. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, Revenu Quebec fast-tracked the declarations indicating a return in order to try to get people their money back faster.
The pandemic also resulted in this year’s deadline being extended from the usual date of April 30 to June 1 to allow people more time to sort out details in what has become a complicated time for many, financially. The limit for repaying money owed has also been extended, this time to September 1. Revenu Quebec is also waiving penalties on declarations filed up to September 1.
Revenu Québec is also committed to providing additional time for the filing of applications related to certain socio-fiscal programs, such as the tax credit for home-support services for seniors and the Housing Allowance program.
