Are you eligible for the disability tax credit (DTC)?

Answer

You may be eligible for the DTC.

Take Form T2201, Disability Tax Credit Certificate, to a medical practitioner who can certify the effects of your impairment for you. If the medical practitioner certifies the form, send it to us for approval. We will review your form and advise you in writing if you are eligible for the DTC.

If you are eligible for the DTC, you may be able to claim the disability amount. For more information, see How to claim the disability amount?

You may also have expenses that you can claim on your tax return. For more information, see Guide RC4064, Disability-Related Information, or use the following links:


You have told us:

  • your impairment lasted, or is expected to last, for a continuous period of at least 12 months
  • your impairment restricts you in one or more of the basic activities of daily living
  • the effects of your impairment cause you to be markedly restricted all or substantially all of the time (at least 90% of the time), in one or more of the basic activities of daily living, even with appropriate therapy, medication and devices
