The Disability Tax Credit may be available to a person who has ADD or Attention Deficit Disorder. If you would like to know if you qualify for the credit, call or make an appointment to talk to an expert at Disability Credit Consultants.
Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) is a neurological disorder that affects behavior and is eligible for disability tax credits in Canada. Disability Credit Consultants are experts at helping Canadians get tax credit for disabilities such as ADD.
A person with Attention Deficit has bouts of attention difficulties. Some people are naturally more active and excited due their personalities. Sometimes, however, the problem is serious enough to impair activities of daily living and can be classified as a legitimate medical disorder for which the Disability Tax Credit can be claimed.
Attention Deficit symptoms often manifest quite early, at usually less than seven years of age. The disorder affects one in twenty children worldwide and is one of the most common psychiatric disorders in children. It is a disorder that has grown more commonplace over the last several decades. This disorder can be treated either by medication or through behavior conditioning. Significant research has been done on AD and proponents claim that it can be diagnosed and detected as per a predictable pattern.
The symptoms of ADD are chronic, and childhood sufferers can carry the symptoms well into adulthood. If you have a family member such as a child that you are supporting who has ADD, you may be able to use the Disability Tax Credit to lower the income tax you are required to pay. Since the Disability Tax Credit can be claimed retroactively for up to 10 years, approval for the credit can result in a substantial tax credit, sometimes thousands of dollars.
Fortunately, the Canadian government recognizes Attention Deficit as a disability, if it is so deemed by the person’s own doctor. A further condition is that the disability has lasted more than a year. Call Disability Credit Consultants at 1-855-752-0288 to find out if you are eligible for the credit.
