Disability Tax Credit
The Disability Tax Credit is a non-refundable credit, available when an individual is certified by an appropriate medical practitioner as having a severe and prolonged mental or physical impairment (or a number of ailments) that significantly restricts the individual’s ability to perform a basic activity of daily living. Examples of such impairments include, but are not limited to, vision, speaking, hearing, walking, feeding, dressing, life-sustaining therapy, and mental functions necessary for everyday life.
In order to be eligible for the disability tax credit the effects of impairment must have existed, or are expected to exist, for at least 12 months and are severe enough that even with therapy and the use of appropriate devices and medication, the individual is still restricted at least 90% of the time from performing daily functions. To claim the disability tax credit, the individual (or a representative) must file Form T2201, Disability Tax Credit Certificate, which must be signed by a specified medical practitioner.
If the disabled individual does not require the full amount of the disability tax credit to eliminate taxes payable, the unused portion may be transferred to supporting relatives. Lastly, as is often the case, individuals can carry a disability for years without being accurately diagnosed, thankfully the disability tax credit can be claimed for up to 10 years retroactively.
We offer the following services for the Disability Tax Credit:
- Disability Tax Credit eligibility assessment
- Assistance with preparing and filing the Disability Tax Credit Certificate (T2201)
- Assessing eligibility for related disability and/or caregiver credits
- Filing your personal income tax return and related disability tax credit schedules
