Direct Deposit of Your Refund

If you have an account at a financial institution with an establishment in Canada, you can register for direct deposit to have us deposit your refund directly into your account when we send your notice of assessment (or sooner, if you request an accelerated refund).

Registering for direct deposit or changing your direct deposit information

You can register for direct deposit or change your account information in any of the following ways:

  • Use the Register for Direct Deposit and the Change Direct Deposit Information online services.
  • Enclose with your income tax return a blank cheque marked “VOID” on the front and bearing your name and social insurance number.
  • Complete a Request for Direct Deposit (form LM-3.Q-V or LM-3.M-V). If you live closer to Québec City, use form LM-3.Q-V. If you live closer to Montréal, use form LM-3.M-V. The only difference between the two forms is the Revenu Québec office address.

If you are filing your income tax return online, you must provide the following information:

  • the branch number of your financial institution
  • the financial institution number
  • your account number

Note
If you have changed accounts and notified us of the change, it is important not to close your old account until the next payment is deposited into your new account. This way, you will be sure to avoid any interruption of your payments.

The benefits of direct deposit

Direct deposit makes sense because it eliminates the risk of cheques being lost or stolen and guarantees that you will receive the following, even if there is a postal strike or if you are sick or away from home:

Cancelling direct deposit

Your direct deposit registration will remain in effect until you request that we cancel it in writing or by telephone. However, if you are entitled to the solidarity tax credit, you must be registered for direct deposit to receive it.
