What is NetFile Québec?
NetFile Québec is Revenu Québec’s service for submitting your Québec tax return online (instead of printing and filing by mail). The service is only available through third-party software such as TurboTax.
If you want to submit your tax return online through TurboTax, you can choose the NetFile Québec option and TurboTax will submit your return to Revenu Québec.
