The changes affect some tax credits.
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.
