Changes During the Year

Since the solidarity tax credit is based on your situation on December 31, 2016, you do not need to inform us of any changes in your situation during the year. You must, however, notify us if:

  • you leave Québec permanently;
  • you are confined to a prison or similar institution;
  • your spouse dies.

Loss of entitlement to the credit

You are not entitled to receive the solidarity tax credit for a given month if, immediately before the first day of the month, you are no longer resident in Québec or are confined to a prison or similar institution. If such a situation arises after you claim the credit, call us.

In the case of a deceased person, we will stop paying the credit in the month following his or her death.

If your spouse received the solidarity tax credit for your couple and he or she dies or becomes confined to a prison or similar institution, you can receive the credit instead, provided you meet the conditions. You do, however, have to claim it. For more information, contact us.
