Changes to the RL-1 Slip
Below are the changes made to form RL-1, Relevé 1 – Revenus d’emploi et revenus divers for 2011.
New RL-slip code box
When completing an RL-1 slip (RL-1), enter "R" for an original RL-1 slip, or "D" for a cancelled slip, in the box marked "Code du relevé." For more information on amending or cancelling a slip, see section 3.5 of the Guide to Filing the RL-1 Slip (RL-1.G-V).
New blank boxes in the centre of the RL-1 slip
We have added four blank boxes in the centre of the RL-1 slip so that you can enter the additional information that you previously would have indicated in the form of notes in the same area. From now on, you are to use these new boxes to enter the additional information associated with one of the boxes in the upper portion of the RL-1 slip, as indicated in the example below.
For 2011, you may choose to enter this information in the new boxes or as notes in the empty space in the centre of the RL-1 slip.
A table of additional information to be entered in the centre of the RL-1 slip is provided in section 4.27 of the Guide to Filing the RL-1 Slip (RL-1.G-V). This information is also presented in the sections of the RL-1.G-V guide that correspond to each box in the upper portion of the RL-1 slip.
In addition, note that the RL-1 slip supplied by Revenu Québec is now a different size (8 1/2 in. x 14 in.) and adjustments may be required before printing data on the slip.
