Join Don Davies MP and special guest Peter Julian MP, for an hands on discussion on the the Disability Tax Credit (DTC), how to apply, and how it can qualify you for the Canadian Dental Care Plan (CDCP). This session will be a friendly and informative discussion where you'll learn eligibility criteria and other useful tips. This is a great opportunity to learn how to obtain upcoming dental coverage as well as potential tax refunds.
What is the Disability Tax Credit (DTC)?
The DTC is a federal program that delivers significant benefits to disabled Canadians. It is a non-refundable tax credit that helps reduce the income tax that people with physical or mental impairments, or the supporting family members, may have to pay. It aims to offset some of the costs related to the impairment. To qualify for the DTC you must submit a T2201 Disability Tax Credit Certificate. If you think you may be eligible for the DTC, you should apply. DTC eligibility opens the door to other federal, provincial, or territorial programs, such as:
- registered disability savings plan
- Canada workers benefit disability supplement
- child disability benefit
- multigenerational home renovation tax credit
Why is it Important?
If you qualify for the DTC, not only will you potentially qualify for other federal and provincial programs, you will also qualify for the Canada Dental Care Plan (CDCP) under the disability criteria. This will give you and your loved ones earlier access to the CDCP than the general public. Meaning you and your loved ones can get the dental care you need sooner.
