On Monday, February 20, Don Davies, NDP MP for Vancouver Kingsway held a sold-out seminar on disability tax credit. It seems there is enough interest in this riding on long-term disability tax credits to pack the Trout Lake Community Centre on a rainy Monday night.

As the promotional materials put it, “In our community, thousands of people with disabilities may be eligible for an important tax credit that often includes a significant tax refund. Many people do not know they can claim the Disability Tax Credit retroactively for up to 10 years”. A representative from Canada Revenue Agency was also in attendance to answer questions.

The Canada Revenue Agency provides a wide range of information and forms that you can download and read yourself. The Disability Tax Credit Certificate (T2201) is available in PDF t2201-11e.pdf (69 KB) as well as E-text t2201-11e.txt (46 KB), Braille t2201-11e.brf (45 KB), and large-print t2201-lp-11e.pdf (116 KB) versions.

Regardless of your political leanings, if you have a long-term disability it’s good to know what opportunities there are to ease your suffering or pain. Due to the overwhelming interest in the subject of long-term disability tax credits, the Minister Davies will be holding are repeat seminar in the not-too-distant future.

Being informed about your rights as a person with disabilities can protect you from having your disability claim denied. Consulting a lawyer in your area, who is an expert in long-term disabilities, can provide with all the assurance and security you need.
