Duality of Quebec and the Rest of Canada

The tax legislation and its administration in the province of Québec is greatly harmonized with the federal legislation and its administration. However, some notable differences exist that must be known by taxpayers and tax advisors alike. This presentation will highlight the most important particularities of the Québec legislation and of the practices of the Agence du Revenu du Québec (“ARQ“).
