Several medical conditions can make you eligible to claim and obtain the Disability Tax Credit and other Health-Related Tax Credits.
Often, for each person with a health condition, several family members can be entitled to health-related tax credits.
The credits we target may vary between 0$ and 40 000$ (amount determined by duration of the health condition, the family situation, fiscal situation for each year.) The refunds that our customers obtain with our services is on average 8,000$ and you don’t have to give us your tax records or a copy of your medical file.
If you or a family member have had health problems for more than 12 months, it is likely that you are entitled to thousands of dollars in tax credits. Those credits can be retroactive for up to 10 years.
Criteria for eligibility :
A person who has or has had in the past a permanent or temporary medical restriction that has lasted more than 12 months in a row, and that slowed down daily activities with regards to one or more of the following functions:
