Tax credits and deductions for persons with disabilities
The Disability Tax Credit Promoters Restrictions Act, which received Royal Assent on May 29, 2014, proposes to limit the fees that a promoter may charge to complete a disability tax credit request. The Act will not be in force until regulations establish the maximum fees and individuals who may be exempt from the reporting requirements.
The Minister of National Revenue announced on Tuesday November 4th, 2014 that the CRA is now consulting with Canadians in advance of establishing the legislation's supporting regulations. Through these consultations, the CRA is also looking for suggestions on how to simplify the disability tax credit application process and clarify the steps Canadians need to take to apply for the credit. For more information on how to participate, go to Disability tax credit consultations.
