Completing a Disability Tax Credit Form
Can you reduce your income tax?
The Disability Tax Credit, also known as the disability amount, is a non-refundable credit that reduces the amount of income tax a person must pay. In 2015, the maximum disability tax credit an eligible person could receive was $7,899. You can transfer all or part of the amount to your spouse or common-law partner, or to another supporting person.
