  • 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
