New obligations of landlords and tenants

Dear client,

We wish inform you that as of January 2016 , the owners of a rental income property will be required to provide a new tax slip, RL-31 “Information about leased dwellings” to their tenants or subtenants.

The statement has to be distributed to all individuals who are tenants or subtenants at December 31st, 2015 and needs to be filed no later than 28 February 2016. The penalties for late filing of the tax slip can be more than 1000$.

The tenants and subtenants will use the information provided on this statement to claim the solidarity tax credit in their tax return.

If you have difficulty completing this tax slip, please contact us.
