Balance Due

Since the regular April 30 filing deadline falls on a Sunday this year, you have until May 1, 2017, to file your 2016 income tax return.

Note that May 1, 2017, is also the deadline for paying your balance due. This means that we must receive your payment by midnight on that date.

You can pay your balance due online, by cheque or money order, or at your financial institution.

Note

You are not required to pay a balance of less than $2.

For information about late-filing penalties, penalties for failure to file, and payment agreements, see Penalties and Interest.

Payment methods

You can pay a balance of income tax due in any of the following ways:

Paying by mail
  • You can mail us a cheque or money order payable to the Minister of Revenue of Québec. Be sure to sign the payment and enter 2017 as the date. Do not write “Final Payment” on the back. 
  • Complete the remittance slip enclosed with your notice of assessment and mail it to us with your cheque or money order. If you used commercial software to file your income tax return, you can use the software to print a remittance slip. If you do not have a remittance slip, you can order one by calling us or by using the Ordering Forms and Publications online service. 
  • Mail the remittance slip (including your payment and your income tax return, if applicable) to one of the following addresses:
    Québec City Revenu Québec
    3800, rue de Marly
    Québec (Québec)  G1X 4A5
    Montréal Revenu Québec
    C. P. 3000, succursale Place-Desjardins
    Montréal (Québec)  H5B 1A4
  • The remittance slip that you can print with commercial software can only be used to pay your balance by mail. It cannot be used to pay your balance in person at a financial institution.
  • If your financial institution refuses to honour your cheque because there are not sufficient funds in your account, a fee of $35 will be added to your debt. This fee is payable as of the date of refusal by the financial institution, and interest charges accumulate thereon as of that date.
