Applying for the disability tax credit

Applying for the DTC blog cover image

The disability tax credit (DTC) is a non-refundable tax credit that helps people with disabilities, or their supporting family member, reduce their tax burden.

If you have a severe and prolonged impairment, you may apply for the credit using Form T2201, which is filled out both by the applicant and by their medical practitioner. If approved, the credit can be applied at tax time, and you can also ask to have previous years returns recalculated, if applicable.

Are you applying for the disability tax credit? If so, the CRA has made it faster and easier for persons with disabilities and their medical practitioners to complete the DTC application form, by introducing a new fully digital application process. 

Previously you would have to print off a form and then bring it physically to your doctor for them to fill out.

You can now complete Part A of the application form online in your CRA My Account or by phone. (To further simplify the process, the applicant’s portion of the form will be prepopulated with information already on file at the CRA.)

Once completed, the applicant will receive a reference number to give to their medical practitioner who will use it to complete Part B of the form.

Here is some more information about the disability tax credit on the CRA site.
