Que­bec Tax­pay­ers can now file on­line

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

Revenu Québec wishes to in­form tax­pay­ers and pro­fes­sional tax pre­par­ers alike that the Net­File Québec ser­vice is now of­fi­cially avail­able for the 2012 tax­a­tion year. Tax­pay­ers who file their in­come tax re­turns us­ing au­tho­rized soft­ware can there­fore sub­mit their re­turns as of to­day and ben­e­fit from the many ad­van­tages af­forded by this on­line ser­vice.

Among other ad­van­tages, in­come tax re­turns filed us­ing Net­File Québec are pro­cessed more quickly.

Tax­pay­ers who file their in­come tax re­turns on­line can ex­pect that Revenu Québec will is­sue a no­tice of as­sess­ment or send a re­fund within 14 days, whereas the pro­cess­ing time for in­come tax re­turns filed by mail is 28 days.

Each year, more and more Québec tax­pay­ers choose to use Net­File Québec to file their per­sonal in­come tax re­turns. In 2012, the in­come tax re­turns of nearly 3.75 mil­lion in­di­vid­u­als were filed us­ing this ser­vice, whether the re­turns were filed by the in­di­vid­u­als them­selves or through the ser­vices of a pro­fes­sional tax pre­parer. This means that 60% of all in­come tax re­turns re­ceived by Revenu Québec in 2012 were filed on­line.

Québec tax­pay­ers have un­til April 30, 2013, to file their per­sonal in­come tax re­turns for the 2012 tax­a­tion year. Ex­cep­tion­ally, in­di­vid­u­als who are re­port­ing busi­ness in­come (and their spouses) have un­til June 17,

2013, to file their re­turns. Re­gard­less of the fil­ing dead­line that ap­plies, any bal­ance due for 2012 must be paid no later than April 30, 2013.

MY AC­COUNT, A USE­FUL SPACE FOR TAX­PAY­ERS!

Revenu Québec also wishes to re­mind tax­pay­ers that they can reg­is­ter for My Ac­count at www.revenuque­bec.ca /mon­dossier. My Ac­count is a space spe­cially de­signed for in­di­vid­u­als where they can ac­cess in­for­ma­tion re­gard­ing their tax file and use a num­ber of prac­ti­cal on­line ser­vices. For ex­am­ple, they can view their no­tices of as­sess­ment, their con­fir­ma­tions of ac­cel­er­ated re­funds and their in­come tax re­turns. They can also reg­is­ter for di­rect de­posit and down­load tax data in or­der to make fil­ing their in­come tax re­turns eas­ier.
