Revenu Québec has introduced flexibility measures for individuals and businesses affected by the COVID-19 situation. A summary appears below.
Please note that while we endeavour to update due dates in TaxCycle as information changes, please refer to the following pages for the latest information on these measures:
In the case of businesses including corporations, the payment of tax instalments and taxes due as of March 17, 2020 is suspended until September 1, 2020. The return filing due date remains at 6 months after the tax year end.
Many trusts with a March 30, 2020, filing deadline now have until May 1, 2020, to file their returns. Moreover, trusts paying tax balance and contributions for the 2019 taxation year received a due date extension until September 1, 2020.
Partnerships that had to file a Partnership Information Return (form TP-600-V) for 2019 by March 31, 2020, now have until May 1, 2020, to file the return.
Flexibility measures are also planned for tax return preparers. Revenu Québec will from now on allow tax return preparers to use an electronic signature on certain forms that they must have their clients sign. This will limit the administrative procedures to be carried out in person.
