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.

What a disappointment. I was looking forward to that credit but I guess I would have to migrate north. Washington is all tax and spend now. Forget about any more tax credits in the USA.

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.

I'm glad to hear that you got approved budd and for all those years. I am on CPP Disability and it is taxable, so this credit helped me. Also on WSIB pension, which is not taxable.

Thanks for this info Bob.  I am printing out the form as I type this and will be taking it to my doctor to see what he says.  
Worth a shot!

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.

Cheers Bob

Can anyone with an ostomy claim this or do you have to be disabled?

Hi Holly, in my opinion, anyone with an ostomy can claim for the tax credit.
