Line 316 – Disability amount for self

If you are eligible for the disability tax credit (DTC), you may be able to claim the disability amount of $7,899 on line 316 of your tax return.

Tax Tip

If you were eligible for the DTC for previous years but did not claim the disability amount when you filed your return, you can request adjustments for up to 10 years under the CRA's Taxpayer Relief Provisions. To claim the disability amount for prior years, you will need to file Form T1-ADJ, T1 Adjustment Request, for each year you need to amend or send a letter containing the details of your request.

If you or anyone else paid for attendant care or for care in an establishment, special rules may apply. For more information, see Attendant care or care in an establishment.

Supplement for persons under 18

If you were under 18 years of age at the end of the year, you can claim up to an additional $4,607. However, this supplement may be reduced if, in 2015, someone claimed child care expenses (line 214) or attendant care expenses (as a medical expense) for you. It will also be reduced if you claimed attendant care expenses on line 215 or line 330 for yourself. Complete the chart for line 316 on the federal worksheet to calculate your claim.
