Living with a disability can be extremely difficult, not only for the affected individual but for loved ones and caregivers as well. Regardless of the disability – whether it is mental or physical, short term or long term – a person’s physical or mental impairment can put a strain on everyday life for everyone involved. At Disability Credit Consultants of Canada, we help Canadian residents or their loved ones achieve a better quality of life by applying for and receiving the provincial or federal benefits they deserve – and that all begins and ends with successfully filling out disability tax forms through the government.
When it comes to receiving disability benefits through the provincial or federal government, the experts at Disability Credit Consultants of Canada have been tremendously successful over the years and can help eligible disabled persons, family members, or caregivers receive up to $40,000 a year in tax refunds. Can you imagine how much easier everyday life would be if you, as a disabled person or caregiver, had access to that kind of cash for medication, therapy, counseling, home improvements, or educational or employment services?
While there are many types of assistance for the disabled, including generous year-end tax credits or even monthly cash benefits, the primary starting point is filling out the correct disability tax forms – in this case, starting with the T2201 Disability Tax Credit Certificate, which is available through the Canada Revenue Agency website or one of its local offices.
Even under the best circumstances and with the aid of a caregiver or loved one, filling out this form can be time consuming, frustrating, and expensive if not filled out properly the first time. At Disability Credit Consultants of Canada, our disability credit consultants have decades of experience in navigating the sometimes rough waters of the form submission process. Even the simplest mistake could cost thousands of dollars when you factor in time collecting information, calling or visiting the Canada Revenue Agency offices, calling or visiting a doctor’s office for copies of medical records, or any other task necessary to fill out the form correctly.
The easiest way to accurately fill out your disability tax forms is working with the disability and counseling specialists at Disability Credit Consultants of Canada. Once we have established a relationship with a client, either a disabled individual or a caregiver, we take the tedium and worry off of someone else’s shoulders and put it where it belongs, on our own.
If you are undecided about whether to attempt to fill out and submit disability tax forms, have you taken the time to look at form T2201? This is a 12 page document that requires patience, attention to detail, comprehension, and the means to provide accurate information about the person requesting benefits.
A big part of the process involves a self-assessment, where the disabled is required to answer questions such as:
- Has your impairment in physical or mental functions lasted, or is it expected to last, for a continuous period of at least 12 months?
- Do you receive life-sustaining therapy? This is defined as “therapy to support a vital function,” occurring three or more times a week.
The form has a one page section (Part A) for the disabled person or legal representative to fill out, but the truly complicated section is for the qualified practitioner (Part B), which is eight pages long. From our experience, many disabled persons become so frustrated with the length of the form they never fill it out. But there is a better way: Call Disability Credit Consultants of Canada at 855-752-0288 and let us fill out your disability tax forms – today.
