Changes in the Course of the Year
You must notify us of any change in your situation or in that of a family member that could affect the amount of your advance payments of the tax credit for childcare expenses.
To do so, you must complete form TPZ-1029.8.F.C-V, Notice of Change in Situation: Advance Payments of the Tax Credit for Childcare Expenses. Note that you must already have submitted the application for advance payments using form TPZ-1029.8.F-V, Tax Credit for Childcare Expenses: Application for Advance Payments.
If the changes involve the location, the number of days of care during the year or the amount of the childcare expenses, you must have the person who provides the childcare services (or that person's representative) complete form TPZ-1029.8.F.A-V, Childcare Expenses Qualifying for the Tax Credit: Fees and Number of Days of Care (or any other document providing the same information).
We must receive form TPZ-1029.8.F.C-V, Notice of Change in Situation: Advance Payments of the Tax Credit for Childcare Expenses, and the requested documents by mail no later than November 15 of the year in question.
- one or more children covered by your application for advance payments no longer require or will no longer require childcare services;
- all the children covered by your application for advance payments no longer require childcare services;
- the number of childcare days for one or more children covered by your application has decreased.
You may be required to pay back your advance payments of this tax credit if you no longer meet the requirements for claiming the credit or if your situation changed in the course of the year. Moreover, if you received advance payments during the year but no longer reside in Québec at the end of the year (on December 31), you still have to file an income tax return.
