Relevé 27: Government payments (RL-27)

If you had a service contract with a department or an agency of the Québec government in 2016, you’ll receive a Relevé 27 (RL-27) slip. Your RL-27 slip is used to report the following information:

  • Contractual payments (Box A) and/or
  • Subsidies (Box B)

If you didn’t receive an RL-27 slip and you were expecting one, you can:

  • Contact the department directly and request a duplicate copy
  • Contact Revenu Québec by calling 1-800-267-6299 or
  • Access the information through Revenu Québec’s My Account service (registration required)

  • 3 – Partnership
  • 4 – Individual (or trust), corporation or partnership that is a holder of a joint account or co-recipient of payments
  • 5 – Individual (or trust), corporation or partnership that is part of a consortium or joint venture
