Quebec relevés (RL) in T1/TP1

Updated: 2017-12-21

Most Québec relevés in TaxCycle appear at the bottom of the related federal slip. Others, without an equivalent federal slip, appear on their own in the Prepare sidebar.

For example, the Relevé 1 (RL1) appears at the bottom of the equivalent federal slips. This may be a T4, T4A or T4ARCA slip, depending on the type of income reported. The RL7, however has it's own slip in the Prepare sidebar.

Activate the RL1 on the T4 slip

  1. Open the T4 slip and enter the T4 box amounts.
  2. When you choose QC as the province of employment, messages appear to help you complete the required fields on the RL1.
  3. To view the RL1, scroll down, or click the link that appears at the top right of the form to jump down to that section.
  4. While much of the information from the T4 slip flows directly to the RL1, review details on these slips as additional review messages may appear there. 
  5. The employment income from box 14 on the T4 slip does not flow to box A on the RL1. Since RL1 box A often includes the amount from RL1 box J, the reported amount can be different from the T4 slip. If the amount on the RL1 slip is the same as on the T4 slip, use the Quick Fix review message to enter it. If the amount is different on the RL1 slip, type the amount directly in the field.
  6. Click the link that appears at the top right of the RL1 section to jump back to the T4.

View Québec RL and federal slips side-by-side

Because the data entry for Québec RL slips appear at the bottom of the equivalent federal slip, it can be useful to use TaxCycle's separate windows to view them side-by-side.

  1. Open the slip in the main TaxCycle window. (For example, open the T4 slip.)
  2. Drag the tab for the T4 slip to a new, separate, secondary TaxCycle window. If you drag it all the way to the side of your screen, it snaps to take up exactly half of your screen.
  3. In the original, main window, open the T4 slip again.
  4. In one of the windows, click the RL1 link at the top right to jump to the Québec section.
  5. You can enter data in either window. The both windows are instantly updated. 
  6. Although the secondary window does not contain a full menu or sidebar, you can also search for forms and open them by pressing F4 and using Fast Find.
