Solidarity Tax Credit – Tax Credits
On July 1, 2011, the solidarity tax credit replaced the QST credit, the property tax refund and the credit for individuals living in a northern village.
Payment of the credit
To receive this tax credit, you must be registered for direct deposit. If you have not already registered, you can do so:
- by using the Register for Direct Deposit online service. If you are already registered for our online services, you can register for direct deposit immediately. To register for our online services, click Register for My Account;
- by enclosing with your return a blank cheque marked “VOID” on the front and bearing your name and social insurance number (the cheque must be from an account at a financial institution that has an establishment in Canada);
- by completing a Request for Direct Deposit (form LM-3.Q-V or LM-3.M-V), and including it in your income tax return. If you live closer to Québec City, file form LM-3.Q-V; if you live closer to Montréal, file form LM-3.M-V. The only difference between the two is the address to which you must send the form.
We will advise you of the amount of your tax credit and provide you with the information used to calculate it. The credit will be paid monthly starting in July 2014 and ending in June 2015.
