The disability tax credit (DTC) is a non-refundable tax credit used to reduce the income tax you pay. It’s available for people with a severe and prolonged physical or mental impairment, subject to approval by the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA). It’s meant to help even out the tax burden by allowing some relief for disability costs.

Where a child or other dependent doesn’t have any taxable income, a parent or other relative can claim the DTC under certain conditions.

To qualify for the DTC, you must submit the Form T2201, Disability Tax Credit Certificate, and the CRA must approve your application before you file your income tax return for the year you’re claiming the credit. The disabled person (or a family member) completes Part A of the form and, depending on the nature of the disability, a medical doctor or other health practitioner such as an audiologist, optometrist or psychologist fills out Part B.
