CRA Disability Tax Credit - Information for People Who Stutter

Arun Khanna

Sunday 10:45AM - 11:45AM EST



The disability tax credit (DTC) is a tax credit that provides tax relief for individuals who have a severe and prolonged impairment in physical or mental functions by providing a credit against taxes payable. The DTC also includes a supplement for a person with severe and prolonged impairment in physical or mental functions who was under 18 years of age at the end of the tax year. The DTC is also available to a supporting family member if the individual cannot benefit from the tax credit. Eligibility is based on the effects of the impairment.

The purpose of this workshop will be to inform Canadian taxpayers of this tax credit and how it might apply to people who stutter.

What to expect

After the workshop, it is expected that attendees will have an awareness of the DTC and have enough information to determine if they should explore this tax credit.
