Solidarity tax credit 

The solidarity tax credit is a refundable tax credit intended to help low- or middle-income households. The tax credit will be paid to you by direct deposit at a frequency that will depend on the amount determined for the payment period.

You can claim the solidarity tax credit if, as of December 31 of the year preceding the period covered by your claim, you have filed an income tax return for that same year and you meet all of the following conditions :

  • you were 18 years of age or older or you were in one of the following situations: (you were under 18 and you had a spouse, you were under 18 and you had a child residing with you or you were recognized as an emancipated minor)
  • you lived in Quebec
  • you or your spouse were a Canadian citizen, permanent resident or refugee.


You are not entitled to the solidarity tax credit:

  • for the month(s) at the beginning of which you were detained in a prison or similar institution
  • for the month(s) for which a person received the family allowance payment from Retraite Québec for you
  • It is possible that you meet all the eligibility conditions for this credit, but that you do not receive it because your family income equals or exceeds the maximum family income giving entitlement to this credit.
  • If you have a spouse and he lives with you, only one of you can claim the solidarity tax credit for your couple. 

To ensure that you obtain all the amounts to which you may be entitled for each of the components of the solidarity tax credit, you must apply for them by completing Schedule D of your income tax return. 

If you want to know the amount of the solidarity tax credit to which you may be entitled, use the Tool for estimating the payments of the solidarity tax credit .
