Seniors who are 70 or over
A person may be entitled to the tax credit for home-support services for seniors if he or she resided in Québec on December 31 of the year when the services giving entitlement to the tax credit were received.
If the person applies for the tax credit for services that he or she began to receive before age 70, the credit may be claimed only for the portion of the expenses incurred after turning 70.
To claim the tax credit for home-support services for seniors, complete Schedule J and enclose it with the personal income tax return to be filed with Revenu Québec. There may also be other documents that have to be enclosed with the return.
Only one claim may be filed per couple.
In certain cases where seniors can apply for advance payments of the tax credit, it is not necessary to complete Schedule J.
