In TurboTax CD/Download, how do I submit my tax return to Revenu Québec using NetFile Québec?

SOLVEDby TurboTax1Updated February 03, 2022

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. For more information, visit the Revenu Québec: income tax returns online page.

If you're eligible to use Revenu Québec's NetFile service, continue following the steps below in TurboTax until you get a NetFile Québec reference/confirmation number, as it's your guarantee that your return was received. Save this number for your records. For more information, visit the Tax form restrictions page on Revenu Québec's website.

If you haven’t completed the Review section of your return, complete that first. If you’re in Forms mode, switch to EasyStep mode by selecting EasyStep from the TurboTax menu.

  1. Select Find and enter review
  2. Select Review your tax return and then select Go
  3. On the Great, you’ve entered all of your tax information step, select Start Review
  4. Follow the instructions to complete your review, which is complete when you land on the You are ready to file step

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

If you’re in Forms mode, switch to EasyStep mode by selecting EasyStep from the TurboTax menu.

  1. Select Find and enter NETFILE
  2. Select NETFILE or print and then select Go
  3. On the You are ready to file step, select Start next to Your Québec return for the return you want to file
    • If you’ve prepared a return for your spouse/partner together with yours, each return will need to be filed separately. Locate and select Start for the return you’d like to file first. After a return is submitted, TurboTax will bring 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
  4. On the NetFile Québec Restrictions step, review the restrictions, answer the question, and select Continue
  5. On the NetFile Québec Additional Information step, answer the questions, and select Continue
  6. On the Prepare to File Your Québec Return step, select I want to submit my return to Québec's NetFile service now, and select Continue
  7. On the Revenu Québec My Account step, answer the questions, and select Continue
  8. On the Revenu Québec Mailing Address step, answer the question, and select Continue
  9. On the Direct deposit for Revenu Québec step, answer the question, and select Continue
  10. On the Certify Personal Info Before Filing With Revenu Québec step, select Continue. TurboTax then submits your return to Revenu Québec for you
  11. Locate your confirmation number on the Great news! step. If your return was successfully received by NetFile Québec, TurboTax will display a confirmation number. Until you get a confirmation number, you haven't successfully filed
  12. If you prepared a return for your spouse/partner with yours, follow the instructions and TurboTax will bring you back to the You are ready to file step. Repeat Steps 3 to 11 to file your spouse/partner’s return

Important: If your return isn't accepted by Revenu Québec when you try to file, TurboTax will display an error message and/or error code explaining why your return wasn't accepted. Depending on the error you receive, you may be able to resolve the error and try submitting to NetFile Québec again
