Revenu Québec representatives in Lac-Mégantic
Revenu Québec has announced measures to help individuals and businesses in Lac-Mégantic. We, along with the entire population of Québec, offer our support to the community, and the thoughts of our employees go out to the families affected by the tragedy.
Revenu Québec will cancel any penalties and interest charged to individuals and businesses that are unable to fulfill their tax obligations by the regular deadlines because of this exceptional situation beyond their control.
These measures will apply, for example, to individuals and businesses that are late in filing their income tax or consumption tax returns, in remitting their source deductions and employer contributions, in paying a balance due or in making instalment payments. The measures will remain in effect for as long as the affected individuals and businesses are unable to fulfill their tax obligations.
Revenu Québec representatives are also on hand, at the Bureau d'aide et d'information gouvernemental, to answer questions and assist individuals and businesses.
