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

Answer

You are not eligible for the DTC.

For you to be eligible for the DTC, the impairment in physical or mental functions has to last, or be expected to last, for a continuous period of at least 12 months.

If you still feel that you should 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.

Even if you cannot claim the disability amount, you may have expenses that you can claim on your tax return. For more information, see Guide RC4064, Disability-Related Information, or use the following links:
