The Government of Canada through Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) offers various tax refunds and benefits for individuals with disabilities. These benefits are provided for Canadians with many different types of health issues. See the eligible medical conditions here.
The Disability Tax Credit (DTC) is one of the most important of these programs as it can go a long way towards helping to offset the additional expenses associated with a prolonged impairment in physical or mental functions. The DTC is defined as a non-refundable tax credit which can help reduce a person’s taxable income to zero.
In order to become eligible to receive this valuable tax benefit, there are several factors which need to be considered. The severity and duration of the medical condition, the applicant’s taxable income during the time of their disability, and support provided by family members are just a few things that will help determine whether or not an individual can benefit from The Disability Tax Credit.
For example, once approved, the Disability Tax Credit can be transferred to your spouse, common-law partner, or any other supporting person. There are other criteria which will need to be addressed during the application process. The problem is, the average person is not aware of the legal, medical and tax challenges to be considered when filing an application. The smallest error can result in the claim being denied with the potential loss of thousands of dollars.
How Do I Get Approved for the Disability Tax Credit?
So how does one get approved? Firstly, you must have a severe impairment in physical or/and mental functions. Secondly, this impairment must be prolonged such that it has been persistent or will remain persistent for a continuous period of at least 12 months. Finally, the applicant will need to have a medical professional complete the Disability Tax Credit Certificate, attesting to the severity and duration of their disability or medical condition.
