Trying to build on the recent success they had in targeting the restaurant sector, Revenue Quebec is now setting its sights on the taxi industry.
Revenue Quebec has put out a call for tenders to supply tax calculation software on taxi meters.
It's estimated that the Quebec government loses $73 million a year in uncollected taxes on cab fares.
The Journal de Montreal says tests on the software programme will begin in the fall.
Revenue Quebec spokesman Stephane Dion says the taxi industry supports the move.
"One year ago, we created a committee to bring together the entire industry [around the question of tax evasion]." he said. "The industry's answer was very positive.
"Tax evasion in the taxi sector creates unfair competition for those who do respect our tax law."
Two years ago when the tax calculation software was installed on restaurant cash registers owners received government subsides of about three thousand dollars to defray the cost.
Since then, the government has recovered $412 million dollars in additional tax revenue.
Installing the software in Quebec bars and brasseries is also on the table.
The measure was contained in the budget tabled by the former PQ government in March but was never adopted.
The Couillard government is expected to revive the proposal in its upcoming budget.
It's estimated that such a move would generate about $40 million per year in additional tax revenue.
