Parental insurance benefits are taxable at both government levels (provincial and federal).
You may request that the basic amount, or the amount transferred from the spouse, be considered as income tax credits. They can then be applied to the deductions at source from your benefits.
The basic amount is applied automatically. If you would like to apply the credit for the amount transferred from your spouse, you must complete the following forms. You can then upload them to your online file or send them to us by mail.
If you are a Status Indian and the income that rendered you eligible for the Québec Parental Insurance Plan is tax-exempt, please contact the Centre de service à la clientèle to request an exemption from source deductions.
