One is eligible for the Disability Tax Credit if one has been or will be unable to do any of the following by themselves: dress, feed, go to the washroom, have the thought process to perform an everyday function for one year, or if one is unable to hear, see, talk or walk.
One does not only have to be restricted to a bed, chair or wheelchair in order to be eligible for the Disability Tax Credit. This is a total misconception.
In order to apply for the Disability Tax Credit, Form 2201 – “Disability Tax Credit Certificate” must be completed by a registered medical practitioner. This form requires the date the disability started.
One should be aware that the Disability Tax Credit consists of a Federal component and a Provincial component.
It is also important to note that the Disability Tax Credit is non-refundable and is only available to those who have taxes payable. If the amount of taxes owed is less than the Disability Tax Credit, as stated in http://www.cra-arc.gc.ca/tx/ndvdls/tpcs/ncm-tx/rtrn/cmpltng/ddctns/lns300-350/316-eng.html, one may be able to transfer all or part of the disability amount to a spouse or common-law partner or to another supporting person.
Although we have tried to outline some of the key points of the Disability Tax Credit here, it is of the outmost importance that whoever is completing Form 2201 – “Disability Tax Credit Certificate”, be it you or someone else doing it with or for you, fully understands all of the Canada Revenue Agency’s publications such as the “Disability Tax Credit Certificate” 6729, and Guide RC4064 – “Medical and Disability-Related Information” per www.cra.gc.ca/disability and Guide RC4064.
