Further delays to tax return and tax payment deadlines will be provided for taxpayers in Quebec in harmonization with Canadian federal changes.

Also, in Quebec, partnerships will now have until 1 May 2020 to file their information return for 2019.

Thus, in Quebec, the due date of an individual's tax and contribution payments will be extended with regard to 31 August 2020 (from 30 April 2020), and to 31 August 2020 for tax payments by a trust that has a tax due date on or before 30 March 2020 for its 2019 tax return.

Quebec further announced on 19 March 2020 that it will harmonize with the federal government concerning its measure to reduce by 25% in 2020 the amount of mandatory withdrawal from a registered retirement income fund (RRIF).
