Disability Tax Credit

Who is eligible?
You may be eligible for the Disability Tax Credit if:
- you are blind;

- you have an impairment that affects one or more of the following basic activities of daily living—walking, speaking, dressing, hearing, feeding, eliminating (bowel or bladder functions) or mental functions necessary for everyday life.
How do I apply?
Applying for the DTC is as easy as 1-2-3.
