What to Do with Your RL Slips, Receipts and Other Supporting Documents

If you are filing your return using software, do not enclose any supporting documents with your return.

However, if you are filing your return using our paper forms, you must enclose any federal information slips concerning income earned outside Québec, as well as the documents mentioned in the instructions for the lines of the return listed below (if applicable). Do not enclose any other documents.

  • line 11, under “Special cases” (note concerning the change in your social insurance number)
  • line 18, point 7 and under “Supporting documents”
  • line 101, under “You worked in Québec but did not receive an RL-1 slip”
  • line 107, point 5
  • line 136 (documents to be enclosed if you are not completing form TP 128-V or if you are a member of a partnership from which you did not receive an RL-15 slip)
  • line 154, point 3 (detailed statement of your expenses, if you received any research grants)
  • line 164 (documents to be enclosed if you are not completing form TP 80-V, if your income was derived from farming or fishing or if you are a member of a partnership from which you did not receive an RL-15 slip)
  • line 207, points 5 and 7 (detailed statement of your expenses, if you are not completing form TP-59-V)
  • line 250, point 17
  • line 297, point 2 (document to be enclosed if you did not receive an RL-1 slip)
  • line 297, point 21 (copy of a valid forest producer's certificate)
  • line 462, point 8

Regardless of how you file your return, you must keep all your slips and supporting documents in case we ask for them. As a rule, you are required to keep such documents for six years following the taxation year to which they relate.
