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

SOLVEDby TurboTax16Updated January 19, 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 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 haven’t filled out the Review section of your return, complete that first using the following steps:

  1. Select Find in TurboTax
  2. Enter return summary, then select Go
  3. Follow the instructions to complete your review and verify your personal information. Your review is complete when you reach the Let’s file your return step

If you haven’t paid for your return (or confirmed your order, if you’re using TurboTax Free), complete that next. Here’s how:

  1. Select Find in TurboTax
  2. Enter NETFILE, then select Go
  3. On the Just a few steps left and we’ll file your return step, select Start next to Review your order
  4. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete payment/confirmation. Your payment/confirmation is complete when TurboTax brings you back to the Just a few steps left and we’ll file your return step

Note: Paying for your return doesn't file your return with Revenu Québec.

  1. Select Find in TurboTax
  2. Enter NETFILE, then select Go
  3. On the Filing Hub step, select NetFile Québec next to the return you want to file
    • If you’ve prepared a return for your spouse/partner together with yours, each return must be filed separately. Locate and select NetFile Québec 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 NetFile Québec next to 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. Proceed through the NetFile Quebec: Warnings and NetFile Québec: Errors steps
  7. On the NetFile Québec Transmission step, select Continue. TurboTax then submits your return to Revenu Québec for you
  8. Locate your reference number on the Transmission Successful step. If your return was successfully received by NetFile Québec, TurboTax will display a reference number. Your return hasn't been successfully filed until you get a confirmation number.

Note: If you prepared a return for your spouse/partner together with yours, follow the instructions and TurboTax will bring you back to the Filing your return(s) step. Repeat steps 4 to 10 to file your spouse/partner’s return.

If your return isn't accepted by Revenu Québec when you attempt to file, TurboTax displays an error message and/or code explaining why your return wasn't accepted. Depending on the error you receive, you may be able to resolve it and try submitting to NetFile Québec again. You haven't successfully filed until you get a Revenu Québec reference/confirmation number. Save this number for your records.
