Online filing a CO-17 return

Attach notes to financial statementsTaxCycle is certified by Revenu Québec for online filing of the CO-17 return.

The CO-17 online filing process has one important addition when compared to the T2 Corporation Internet filing process. With each CO-17 transmission, Revenu Québec requires that you attach a PDF copy of the CO-17 return and supporting schedules, notes to the financial statements, and any other documents (such as elections, tax certificate for tax credit) to the transmission. The transmission process in TaxCycle includes steps to attach the notes to the financial statements and other documents. TaxCycle automatically includes a PDF of the CO-17 return upon transmission.

To learn more, read the CO-17 Online Filing help topic.

About online filing of the CO-17

This software allows the filing of the Corporation Income Tax Return (CO-17), the Information and Income Tax Return for Non-Profit Corporations (CO-17.SP) and related forms, including the Online Filing of the Corporation Income Tax Return by an Accredited Person form (CO-1000.TE). However, its use, as well as any omission or inaccuracy in the information provided, is the responsibility of the user.

Transmission par Internet de la CO-17

Ce logiciel permet la production de la Déclaration de revenus des sociétés (CO-17), de la Déclaration de revenus et de renseignements des sociétés sans but lucratif (CO-17.SP) et des formulaires connexes à celles-ci, y compris le formulaire Transmission par Internet de la déclaration de revenus d’une société (CO-1000.TE). Toutefois, son utilisation, de même que toute omission ou inexactitude dans les renseignements fournis, relève de l’utilisateur.

Paper filing a CO-17 return

If you choose not to online file a Québec CO-17 corporate tax return, you must print the barcode and keying summaries for the return on paper and mail them to Revenu Québec. 

To learn how to paper file CO-17 returns, read the CO-17 Paper Filing help topic.
