New QST Rebate for Municipalities and Organizations Designated as a Municipality
Beginning January 1, 2014, municipalities (and organizations designated as a municipality) are entitled to a rebate of 62.8% of the QST paid on property and services acquired to make exempt supplies. The rebate mechanism is similar to that provided for under the GST system.
The 62.8% QST rebate applies to supplies of property and services for which the QST became payable after December 31, 2013, and was paid after that date.
For information on which municipal entities are eligible for the rebate or on the changes to the QST system, see information bulletin 2013-12, published on December 2, 2013, by the Ministère des Finances et de l'Économie.
