How the solidarity tax credit is issued: a definite gain
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.
