The table below lists the software authorized by Revenu Québec that may be used by individuals to file the personal income tax return (TP-1-V).

It is your responsibility to find out from the software developer about any restrictions related to the use of the software. For more information, click Responsibilities of Software Users and Developers.

Notes
  • If you are filing your income tax return online, do not mail us a paper copy of your return or any related documents.
  • If you are filing an income tax return for the first time, you can use authorized software to do so.

We do not verify whether the software you are using takes into account all relevant tax legislation and correctly performs all calculations and data transfers. Consequently, we cannot be held responsible for programming errors that affect the calculation of income tax, contributions and premiums payable. Use of the software, and any omission or error in the information provided, is your responsibility and that of the software developer.

Certain developers offer the opportunity to use their software free of charge, subject to certain conditions. Before using the software, visit the developer's website to check whether your tax situation qualifies you for the offer.

Important

Once Netfile Québec is available for 2018:
