Setting up CO-17 for NetFile transmission

CO-17 returns are transmitted separately from the T2 Federal return, and transmit directly to Ministere du Revenu du Quebec (MRQ). If the CO-17 is to be paper filed, the return must be printed in French or a watermark will display. ProFile will not print the return in English, as this is not permissible by MRQ.

CO-17 Transmission Setup

1. Select the "Options..." option from the "EFILE" drop-down menu in the top toolbar.

2. Select the "T1 Internet" option from the left-side menu.

3. Enter the NetFile number in the "NetFile QC Number" field.

4. Enter the access code in the "Access Code" field:

5. Clic Revenu: Visit clicSEQUR to apply for access to this transmission service. This is commonly used for OnePay customers and is only available for Quebec residents:

3. After completing the return, select the option "Internet file CO-17?".
