Disability Tax credit for Cdns, just to let you know people with ostomies can apply for this, it around a $7,000 tax credit, and can be back dated. Take the form to your Dr, and ask him to sign it. here's the website.
It's $7,225.00 for 2010. It gets put under non-refundable tax credits, but it still helps lower your taxes. My doctor filled out the form last year and they needed more information from him and I didn't know until 3 months later when I called to check on the status of it. He still had the letter sitting in my folder in his office. So I had to make an appointment to go in so he could fill it in. He gave it back to me and I sent it right in to Revenue Canada, hoping they would still approve me, because it was 2 months past the due date they put on it. Luckily, it was accepted and they approved me for 2010 to 2013. I need to call and see if I can get it back dated for 2009. I hope any Canadians will apply for this. It does help.
I was approved as well from 2000- 2010 However only got credit for 2 of those years that I was working. I also didnt get any refund nor did it make a difference on my taxes. Maybe this year it will since I made more...?? It took them 21 weeks to process my forms.
You're quite welcome
You shouldn't have any problem qualifying. To tell the truth I forgot about it and unsure if the gal that did our taxes last year submitted it just remember to renew it evry 5 yrs.

Revenue canada is difficult to deal with in my experience. I had to submit the claim twice bcause the forms changed every couple of months. My doctor was a trooper, however, and filled them out until they finally accepted my claim. Just refiled again after 5 years was up. Website says it can take months to get approval. I know several people who were rejected and did not reapply (felt it wasn't worth the aggravation). That is a mistake. Persistence pays.
Hey Bob, is this different from being on LTD from your work? I don't really understand. I've been off since 2008. Ostomy since 2009. Can you explain to me please? I did order the forms just know. thanks
Funnygurl, you're correct about re-applying and being persistent.
Betty, it works similiar to your basic exemption, in that you won't pay tax on $7225 of your income, if that makes sense ? Could be worth $2000.00 or so, depending on your earnings etc.
IIRC it goes on line 126 or 136 of your tax form.
You should be able to download the forms also.
