Relevé 30: Subsidized educational childcare

What’s in this article?


What is this?

The Relevé 30 (RL-30) slip provides information related to the children who received subsidized childcare in the year. The information on the RL-30 slip helps parents calculate the amount of additional contribution for subsidized educational childcare they may have to pay when filing their tax return for the year.

The RL-30 slip consists of the following:

  • Box A – Date of birth
  • Box B – Number of days (after April 21, 2015) of childcare at the basic rate
  • Box C – Social insurance number of parent
  • Box D – Identification number of coordinating office
  • Box E – Identification number of childcare provider


Revenu Québec says…

Effective April 22, 2015, subsidized childcare fees include a basic contribution of $7.30 per day, per child, and an additional contribution adjusted to your family income. Both the basic and additional contributions will be indexed every year starting on January 1, 2016. You will continue to pay the basic contribution to your childcare service provider. You will pay the additional contribution to Revenu Québec when you file your income tax return. 

The amount of the additional subsidized childcare contribution will be calculated in Schedule I of the income tax return of every parent who signed, in 2014 or 2015, a subsidized childcare agreement for services received after April 21, 2015.

The amount of the additional contribution is based on the following:

  • family income 
  • the number of children who received subsidized childcare (shown on the RL-30 slip)
  • the number of days of care received by each child for whom you must pay the additional contribution (shown on the RL-30 slip)


Am I eligible?

If you were required to pay the basic contribution under a subsidized educational childcare agreement, you will receive an RL-30 slip from your childcare centre, subsidized daycare centre, or the coordinating office of your recognized home childcare provider.

Use the information on the slip to complete Schedule I and calculate the amount of additional contribution for subsidized educational childcare you may have to pay.
