Tax Implications for Caregivers or Loved Ones of Someone with a Disability

 

So many changes have come into place over the last tax year that we wanted to pull out some information that will affect our audience. If you have a loved one with dementia, Alzheimer’s disease or a disability and you also provide care for this person, there are some things you need to be aware of.

 



Disability Tax Credit

In order to apply for the Disability Tax Credit, you need to have a form completed by a doctor in the past, but now an estimate 4,500 nurse practitioners are also able to certify the application, which should decrease the amount of time it takes to complete the application process. We provided more information in a previous post, and included the link to the form. Click here to view.

Caregivers

Three previous caregiver credits are being replaced by the Canadian Caregiver Credit.  The maximum for this credit is $6,883. With these new changes, caregivers who were supporting a parent or grandparent who was 65 or older, will no longer qualify for the credit. The only way to claim this credit is if your elder is infirm.
