Software Serial Numbers
A serial number is assigned to each tax-preparation software copy. The number, assigned by the software developer, allows Revenu Québec to deal more efficiently with tax returns that contain errors, omissions or other irregularities.
In the interests of confidentiality, no information identifying preparers will be given out by software developers. In the case of returns that do not meet requirements, Revenu Québec will ask the taxpayer to identify the person who prepared the return and will then inform the preparer of the problem. Depending on the nature of the problem, the preparer may wish to contact the software developer.
