Disability Tax Credit

The Disability Tax Credit (DTC) is a non-refundable tax credit for persons with significant disabilities. This tax credit may also be claimed by supporting persons to reduce the amount of tax they have to pay. For example, a father can claim the disability credit for a son with a disability. To qualify, the disability must be severe and prolonged. To apply, log into your CRA My Account to initiate the application. You will receive a reference number that you provide to your doctor to complete the application. CRA will then approve or deny your application which may be applied up to 10 years past if you have missed it previously.
