Disability Tax Credit

We are here to help Canadians maximize their disability tax credits with refunds of up to $40,000. We work with our clients and apply for disability tax credits, grants, bonds and other benefits that could be available for them. The Disability Tax Credit (DTC) is an income tax credit that reduces annual income tax payable for Canadians who have a severe and prolonged impairment in physical or mental function and is expected to last at least 12 months.  An individual can file for the disability amount, back 10 years, because of the Tax Payer Relief Provisions in the Income Tax Act.  Refunds can range from $1,500 – $40,000.
