Disability Tax Credit (DTC) Update


Disability Tax Credit (DTC) Update

The disability tax credit (DTC) is a non-refundable tax credit that helps people with impairments.  If you struggle with impairments in walking, mental functions, dressing, feeding, eliminating (bowel or bladder functions), hearing, speaking, vision, or require life-sustaining therapy, you may be eligible to receive this credit.  The DTC can reduce the amount of income tax you may have to pay.  Application requires that your doctor complete and sign a T2201 form and there are a few ways that this can now be done.
