Payment of the Solidarity Tax Credit
If you are eligible for the solidarity tax credit, we will send you a notice of determination showing the amount of your credit for the period from July 2018 to June 2019 and the information we took into consideration to calculate it.
The amount of the credit will determine how often it is paid.
|Amount of the credit||Payment frequency|
|$800 or more||Monthly (from July 2018 to June 2019)|
|More than $240 but less than $800||Quarterly (July and October 2018, and January and April 2019)|
|$240 or less||Lump-sum (July 2018)|
You will receive the payment within the first five days of each month of payment.

As a rule, monthly payments of the tax credit are deposited directly into your bank account. Accordingly, you must inform us of any changes to your banking information. Note that you will lose your entitlement to the tax credit for the payment period from July 2018 to June 2019 if we are unable to deposit the tax credit by January 1, 2022.
If you are not registered for direct deposit, you can do so by:
- using the Register for Direct Deposit online service (you must be registered for My Account for individuals to use this service);
- enclosing with your income tax return a voided cheque bearing your name and social insurance number (the cheque must be from an account at a financial institution that has an establishment in Canada); or
- completing a Request for Direct Deposit (form LM-3.Q-V or LM-3.M-V) and enclosing it with your return (if you live closer to Québec City, file form LM-3.Q-V; if you live closer to Montréal, file form LM-3.M-V).
