Relevé 21: Farm support payments (Paiements de soutien agricole) (RL-21)

Note: H&R Block’s online tax software doesn’t support returns claiming payments received through the AgriStability and/or Agrilnvest Programs. Please contact the retail office closest to you and one of our Tax Experts will be happy to help (fees will apply).

As a farmer living in Québec, you might have received government support payments during the year to help your business. If you did, you’ll receive a Relevé 21: Farm support payments (RL-21) (French only) and a AGR-1: Statement of farm support payments reporting the amounts you received.
