Disability tax credit consultations
On November 4, 2014, the Honourable Kerry-Lynne D. Findlay, Minister of National Revenue, launched a consultation process with Canadians to get their views on how to simplify the disability tax credit (DTC) application process and clarify the steps Canadians have to take to apply for the credit. The consultations also looked for input on the new Disability Tax Credit Promoters Restrictions Act (DTCPRA), which received Royal Assent on May 29, 2014 – specifically, input on the maximum fee to be allowed under the Act and whether some promoters can or should be exempt from the reporting requirements.
From November to December 2014, the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) hosted discussions with taxpayers, disability associations, qualified practitioners, and tax preparers about the new legislation and the DTC process. They and all other stakeholders were also able to contribute to the discussions by providing their input online or in writing.
After it has reviewed all the comments and feedback received, the CRA will use the findings to develop the regulations. The first draft will be published in the Canada Gazette.
