Disability tax credits

The disability tax credit (DTC) is a non-refundable tax credit that helps persons with disabilities or their supporting persons reduce the amount of income tax they may have to pay and provide some relief for disability costs, since these are unavoidable additional expenses that other taxpayers don’t have to face.

The individual who is eligible for the DTC can also take advantage of other support programs (both federal and provincial) such as the registered disability savings plan, the Canada workers benefit, and the child disability benefit.

These credits are also transferrable if the individual with a disability cannot use it due to low income.
