Calculation of the Credit
The solidarity tax credit for the period from July 2018 to June 2019 is based on your situation on December 31, 2017. To calculate your credit, we will add the amounts to which you are entitled under each of the three credit components:
The total amount may be reduced on the basis of your family income.
Your family income is the amount on line 275 of your return plus, if you had a spouse on December 31, 2017, the amount on line 275 of your spouse's return.
If your family income is equal to or greater than the maximum family income shown in the table below, you will not receive the solidarity tax credit. If it is less, complete Schedule D so that we can determine the amount of the tax credit to which you are entitled.
|Family situation||($)||Additional income for dependent children1 ($)||Maximum family income ($)|
|Individual with a spouse||56,240|
|Individual without a spouse||51,656||N/A||51,656|
- In column B, enter $2,026 for each child for whom you or your spouse received the child assistance payment from Retraite Québec for the month of December 2017. Enter the same amount for each child born (or adopted) in December 2017 for whom you or your spouse received the child assistance payment for the month of January 2018.
For an estimation of the tax credit you may receive, use the Solidarity Tax Credit Payments Estimator.
You can claim the solidarity tax credit even if, on December 31, 2017, you lived in a dwelling that is not eligible, such as a dwelling in low-rental housing (HLM). In this case, we will take into account only the QST component and, if applicable, the component for individuals living in a northern village.
