What Is the Role of the Revenu Quebec?

Named the Agence du Revenu du Québec in 2010, the Revenu Quebec oversees the collection of income and consumption taxes, administers PAPA (or child support), and administers taxation-related social programs. The Revenu Quebec is similar to the IRS in the United States.

The Revenu Quebec is Canada's taxation service in charge of managing tax filings, business income and consumption taxes, and providing refunds on over-taxation. The Revenu Quebec's official website, revenuquebec.ca, provides citizens and businesses the ability to file their taxes online, check status of tax returns, and handle tax repayment with their online installment services. The website also provides information and resources for those in low-income families and housing assistance for the elderly.
