Relevé 29: Remuneration of a family-type resource or an intermediate resource (RL-29)

Did you use your residence as a foster home for children or as a group home for adults in 2017? If you did, you’ll be issued a Relevé 29 (RL-29) slip showing the income you received (and the expenses you paid) as a family-type or intermediate resource.

Your income might be subject to Québec parental insurance plan (QPIP) and Québec pension plan (QPP) premiums, if all of the following conditions apply to you:

  • You take in users (up to 9) into your home that were referred to you by a public institution
  • You carry out activities as yourself, and not as an organization
  • The amount you’re paid as a family-type or intermediate resource is considered income
  • The following amounts are more than $2,000:
    • Your net business income
    • Your insurable earnings as a person responsible for a family-type or intermediate resource
    • Your employment income subject to QPIP

To determine the premiums and contributions you need to pay under the QPIP and QPP, you might have to complete the LM-53-V form. For information on your QPIP premium if you’re employed outside of Québec, visit the Revenu Québec website.

Note: If you’re the only person responsible for your family-type or intermediate resource and didn’t use the services of an assistant, you won’t need to complete the LM-53-V form. Instead, H&R Block’s tax software will automatically determine your QPIP and QPP contributions based on the information you entered on the RL-29 page.
