The Solidarity Tax Credit is paid monthly, quarterly or annually, depending on the amount of the credit

Payments beginning in July 2023 will be determined based on the 2022 tax return.  However, the November 7, 2019 Economic Update announced that tax legislation would be amended to enable Revenu Quebec to pay the QST component of the solidarity tax credit to social assistance recipients without them having to file a tax return.

Only one solidarity tax credit claim can be made per couple.

To receive the tax credit payments, individuals must be registered for direct deposit.  Individuals who are not already registered for direct deposit can register online using the Register for Direct Deposit service.
