Yesterday’s Québec budget abolished the health contribution for low- and middle- income individuals. If your net income is below $134,095, you no longer need to pay the contribution. This change is retroactive to the 2016 tax year.
We’ve updated SimpleTax to reflect this new rule!
If you haven’t yet filed, your return will include the most up-to-date health contribution.
If you have already filed, you don’t need to do anything. Revenu Québec will automatically reassess you to take this change into account. In the meantime, if you want to see how this impacts you, log in to your return and click “Show Differences” in the Submit section.
