How the solidarity tax credit is issued: a definite gain

Corps

One of the effects of the bill is to allow the direct deposit of the solidarity tax credit into accounts in financial institutions located outside of Québec.

In a letter to the Chair of the Committee on Public Finance, the Ombudsperson welcomes this gain stemming from her recommendation. She notes that the same bill contains a specific deadline for taxpayers to apply to Revenu Québec for an adjustment after being double-taxed on an amount reimbursed by a succession before January 1, 2010. The Ombudsperson believes that this deadline (December 31, 2011) should be extended by two years to give citizens the opportunity to exercise their rights.
