Revenu Québec Published A List Of Major Changes Affecting 2021 Taxes

This year, like every year, you probably owe the government money. But the sum you pay might be a little different. Revenu Québec has shared a list of major changes affecting the 2021 tax year.

The changes mean that some households could end up with more money in their pockets.

A change to the Child Care Expense Tax Credit, for example, increases limits on some eligible expenses. Revenu Québec gives the example of the maximum eligible expense for a "child with a severe and prolonged impairment in mental or physical functions," which is increasing from $13,445 to $14,230.

The Infertility Treatment Tax Credit, meanwhile, was amended to expand eligibility conditions for expenses paid after November 14, 2021, related to in vitro fertilization and artificial insemination.

There's also a tax deduction for otherwise uncovered travel expenses for people living in some remote areas.

Other changes to credits cover specific situations having to do with the COVID-19 pandemic.

Part of Revenu Québec's list of programs, tax amounts and credits affected by changes is below:

  • Child Care Expense Tax Credit
  • Deduction for goods and services to support a person with a disability
  • Deduction for individuals living in a recognized remote area
  • Dividend tax credit rate
  • Elder Support Tax Credit
  • Infertility Treatment Tax Credit
  • Quebec Drug Insurance Plan
  • Tax credit for acquisition of Capital régional et coopératif Desjardins shares
  • Tax credit for cab drivers and owners
  • Tax credit for the exchange of Capital régional et coopératif Desjardins shares
  • Volunteer Respite Tax Credit and Caregiver Respite Tax Credit
  • Work Experience Tax Credit

Complete information on changes is available on the Revenu Québec website.
