Disability Tax Credit

We believe having ADHD that has been impairing should qualify a person for the Disability Tax Credit (DTC).

The DTC application forms at the Adult ADHD Centre, are completed and signed by the Medical Director, Dr. Gurdeep Parhar MD CCFP CCBOM CIME. Dr. Parhar has certification as a Disability Medicine and Occupational Medicine Physician with 30 years of experience assisting patients with a wide range of disabilities.

The purpose of the DTC is to provide for greater tax equity by allowing some relief for disability costs since these are unavoidable additional expenses for persons with disabilities that other taxpayers do not have to face.

While we cannot guarantee what will happen in any particular person’s situation, our experience is that patients with confirmed ADHD have received thousands of dollars in past taxes refunded to them, and they have also saved tax payments in future years.

Our experience is that simply having an ADHD diagnosis is not enough to meet the criteria to have the DTC approved.

In addition to having an ADHD diagnosis confirmed, it is important to be able to explain how ADHD has affected various parts of someone’s life.

The Adult ADHD Centre Medical Director will complete the Disability Tax Credit Application Form explaining how ADHD is causing disability that would qualify for the Disability Tax Credit. The Medical Director only completes the pdf/paper version of the Disability Tax Credit application form, not the online application form.

Being eligible for the DTC can open the door to other federal, provincial, or territorial programs such as the registered disability savings plan, the Canada workers benefit, and the child disability benefit. Applying for these additional plans can help financially in other ways. For example, if you apply for the registered disability savings plan, the government will pay a matching grant of 300%, 200%, or 100% depending on the beneficiary’s adjusted family net income and the amount contributed.
