TurboTax FAQ

In the CD/download edition of TurboTax, how do I submit my tax return to Revenu Québec using NetFile Québec?

You file your Québec return from the same place in TurboTax as your federal return. Most TurboTax users choose to file their federal return first, but you can choose to file your Québec return first if you’d prefer.

You can submit your completed return to Revenu Québec when the NetFile Québec service is open.

 

Before you begin, complete the Review step

If you haven’t completed the Review section of your return, complete that first.

Note: If you’re in Forms mode, switch to Easy Step mode by selecting Easy Step from the upper-left area of TurboTax.

  1. In the upper-right area of TurboTax, select Find.
  2. In the Find window, type “Review.”
  3. From the list of results, select Review your tax return, then select Go.
  4. Follow the instructions to complete your review. Your review is complete when you reach the <Name>, you are ready to file step.

Note: On the Review: Warnings step, select Review for each item listed until they clear.

 

 

How to submit your tax return using NetFile Québec

  • If you’ve prepared a return for your spouse/partner together with yours, each return must be filed separately. Locate and select Start for the return you want to file first. After a return is submitted, TurboTax brings you back to this step so you can file the second return.
  • You can electronically file both your federal (CRA) and Québec (RQ) returns. To file only your Québec return at this time, select Start next to Your Québec Return for the return you want to file.­­

Note: If you prepared a return for your spouse/partner together with yours, follow the instructions and TurboTax will bring you back to the <Name>, you are ready to file step. Repeat steps 4 to 12 to file your spouse/partner’s return.

 

 

Important: If your return is not accepted by Revenu Québec when you attempt to file, TurboTax displays an error message and/or an error code explaining why your return was not accepted. Depending on the error you receive, you may be able to resolve the error and try to submit to NetFile Québec again. You have not successfully filed until you get a Revenu Québec confirmation number.

If you are eligible to use Revenu Québec’s NetFile service, continue following the steps in TurboTax until you get a NetFile Québec reference/confirmation number; it’s your guarantee that your return was received. Save this number for your records.
