Relevé 31: Information about a Leased Dwelling

Relevé 31 (RL-31) slip reports information about an eligible leased dwelling* for which rent was paid or was payable on December 31. This slip is filed with Revenu Québec by the owner of the rental property. If you’re a tenant or a subtenant of a leased dwelling, you’ll receive a copy of the RL-31 slip (RL-31.CS), which you’ll need to claim the solidarity tax credit.

*An eligible dwelling is a house, apartment, room, or similar place of residence in Québec that acts as your principal residence. An eligible dwelling doesn’t include low-rental housing, a room in a hotel, etc.

What information will my RL-31 slip contain?

Your RL-31 slip will include the following information:

  • Box A – Dwelling number

  • Box B – Total number of tenants and subtenants

  • Box C – Address of the dwelling

  • Name and address of the tenants and subtenants who signed the lease

  • Name and address of the landlord

Claiming the solidarity tax credit

If you or your spouse was a tenant or a subtenant, to claim the housing component of the solidarity tax credit, you’ll need to enter the dwelling number shown in box A of your RL-31 slip on Schedule D. H&R Block’s tax software will automatically use the information you’ve entered on the RL-31 page to complete most of Schedule D for you. You’ll just need to answer a few additional questions to claim this tax credit when you get to the OPTIMIZATION section on the WRAP-UP tab. 

For more information, check out our help centre article, Solidarity tax credit (Schedule D) & Relevé 31.
