In Quebec, you are required to file two tax returns every year: one for the federal government and one for the provincial government.
Taxpayers are required to report their income and pay taxes in the province in which they reside on December 31 of the tax year in question. Income tax is calculated based on progressive marginal rates. The levels of taxation at the federal and provincial levels are cumulative. Income taxes are deducted at source. Employers are responsible for deducting the correct amounts according to the tax regulations.
