Disability Tax Credit

Many of you may have had patients asking you to sign the Disability Tax Credit form after being  told by a private company that they qualify.  These companies charge a significant commission to the patient for assisting them through the process,  and after a number of complaints, CRA has proposed the Disability Tax Credit Promoter’s Restriction Act. 

This will affect physicians, and the CMA has prepared a Disability Tax Credit briefing note and is asking for comment.  SGP will forward any feedback we receive to the CMA.
