Quebec Solidarity Tax Credit

As per the 2015 Budget, the solidarity tax credit is being revised, with the amount to be determined annually rather than monthly, based on information in the tax return.  The amount determined will continue to be paid as of July in the following year, but depending on the value determined, the tax credit will be paid on a monthly, quarterly or annual basis.  Payments beginning in July 2016 will be determined based on the 2015 tax return.  See the October 2015 document from Revenu Quebec titled Solidarity Tax Credit: Changes Ahead.

Details about changes to this tax credit can be found on page A.17 of the 2015-2016 Budget Plan - Additional Information on Fiscal Measures (pdf).

As of July 2011, as announced in the March 2010 Budget, the Solidarity Tax Credit replaced the following:

bullet QST credit,
bullet property tax refund, and
bullet tax credit for individuals living in a northern village

To claim the solidarity tax credit, an individual must:

bullet be 18 or over
bullet be resident in Quebec
bullet have legal status (Canadian citizen, permanent resident, refugee, etc.)
bullet not be confined to a prison or similar institution.

Only one solidarity tax credit claim can be made per couple.

To receive the tax credit payments, individuals must be registered for direct deposit.  Individuals who are not already registered for direct deposit can register online using the Register for Direct Deposit service.

For someone who became a Quebec resident in the taxation year, Schedule D of the income tax return must be completed to claim the solidarity tax credit for the 12 month period beginning the following July.
