Disability Tax Credit

70% of Canadians are not aware they are eligible for disability tax benefits.

The Disability Tax Credit is one of several credits that are offered by Canada Revenue Agency. Yet, many Canadian’s are not aware of the disability tax credit and the benefits it provides. The overall process is fairly simple and once completed, individuals can receive thousands of dollars in returns from Canada Revenue Agency to offset their medical costs.

If you or a loved one suffers from any mental or physical condition that slows you down during your day-to-day activities in comparison to the average individual, then you likely qualify.

What is the Disability Tax Credit?

The Disability Tax Credit (also referred to the disability amount or DTC) is a tax credit that a person, with a qualifying disability, can claim to reduce the amount of income tax one has to pay in a year.

How Does it Work?

Your doctor is required to fill out the Disability Tax Credit form that you pick up from our office or request us to send to you. Based on the information provided on the form by your doctor, we process the application with CRA and make necessary adjustments to your tax returns from previous years. Depending on your case, you can carryback this credit up to 10 years.

 You Are Likely Eligible!

The name, Disability Tax Credit, portrays an image where one might expect to be completely immobile in order to qualify for such a credit. Due to this most individuals don’t consider looking at the disability tax credit. 

Many people are not aware of this tax credit and don’t realize that they are losing out on a lot of money. See if you qualify by submitting your information.

Walking Impairment
If You Have Decreased Mobility Due to a Walking Impairment, You Can Start Claiming Your Expenses Today!

People who are unable to walk end up spending extra money every day on accessibility services, so the government allows these people to deduct these costs and get a bigger refund at the end of the year. However, most people don’t know that this program is not limited to men and women who are completely unable to walk.
 
If your restricted mobility while walking is slowing you down on a day-to-day basis and taking you an inordinate amount of time walk, you are entitled to receive money back from the government.
 
An inordinate amount of time means that walking takes significantly longer than the average person who does not have the impairment to walk the same distance. 

Are You Markedly Restricted? 

Examples of markedly restrictions in walking:

·You can walk 100 metres or one city block, but only by taking an inordinate amount of time, stopping because of shortness of breath or because of pain.
·You have cases of fatigue, lack of coordination and problems with balance. 

Do You Find it Difficult to Move Around?
 
If you have a walking impairment, you know that it forces you to put more time and effort in what you do. For this reason, even if you have a mild walking impairment, you may qualify for this credit which may result in paying less taxes and receiving a bigger return.

Remember that you don’t need a severe walking impairment to qualify. It is possible that you can qualify and receive benefits from the walking component of the Disability Tax Credit. So do not hesitate to see if yo are eligible, because you may qualify.
