Québec Tax Brackets, Tax Rates and Popular Credits

Quebec, the home province of Cirque du Soleil and the famous poutine, a corner of Canada that has a little something for everyone!

Québec has a tax system similar to other Canadian provinces, however, Quebec is the only province that requires its residents to prepare and submit “two separate tax returns”.

Progressive Tax Rate Structure

As with most provinces, Québec uses a progressive tax structure with four different tax brackets. The tax brackets increase each year, based on inflation. Visit Revenu Québec’s Income Tax Rates page for current tax bracket rates.
