Helping Canadians Get Disability Refunds
You may be eligible to receive disability tax credits up to $50,000 for minors or $15,000 for adults.
Did You Know…
Canadians with disabilities qualify for substantial amounts of money from the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) that they are unaware of.
Most Canadians will at some point in their life be eligible for disability tax credits. If you have had a disability for an extended period of time, your tax returns can be reassessed as far back as 10 years. This will allow you to receive 10 years of benefits in a lump sum payment.
Revenue Canada has tax credits for disabled Canadians no matter what their age or income level that can mean additional tax refunds of up to $50,000.
Most Canadians do not access disability benefits that they are entitled to because they did not know they were eligible or they were told by their accountants or doctors about the program but did not have the required forms completed correctly and were denied benefits.
What is the…
Disability Tax Credit?
The Disability Tax credit is a non-refundable tax credit offered by Revenue Canada that will allow taxpayers with disabilities to reduce the amount of income tax they have to pay or it will allow a refund to be issued. There is also an extra supplement for the parents or guardians of children under the age of 18.
Do I Qualify?
There are two criteria that need to be met to receive the financial benefit. You need to have a disability recognized by a qualified medical practitioner and you need to have a taxable income. If the person with the impairment does not have a taxable income, he/she can transfer credits to a supporting relative.
In order to be eligible for the Disability Tax Credit you must have a prolonged impairment in physical or mental functions. A condition is prolonged if it is expected to or has lasted 12 consecutive months.
The individual must also be “markedly restricted” in at least one of the following categories: vision, speaking, hearing, walking, elimination (bowel or bladder functions), feeding, dressing, performing the mental functions of everyday life, life-sustaining therapy to support vital functions or there must be a significant restriction in Cumulative restrictions.
A medical practitioner needs to complete a Disability Tax Credit Certificate and CRA will have to approve the application.
