The Québec Ombudsperson intervenes with the Minister of Finance and Minister of Revenue concerning the introduction of the new solidarity tax credit

Corps

The Québec Ombudsperson has written to Minister Raymond Bachand, expressing her concern about Bill 117, which provides for mandatory automatic transfer of the new solidarity tax credit. Although she supports the principle of automatic transfers of funds, since they reduce the Government's administrative costs, Ms. Saint-Germain is worried that people who do not have an account with a financial institution will be unable to obtain the new credit.
