2009 Tax Tips for Canadians with disabilities and their families

It's here!

Once again, Graeme Treeby of The Special Needs Planning Group has prepared a Tax Tips Guide for people with disabilities and their families.

The purpose of this guide is three fold:

  • To introduce you to the Disability Amount, Caregiver Amount and the T2201 Disability Tax Credit Certificate used to secure them.
  • To share a FREE Re-File Process to Get Back Taxes That Should Never Have Paid in the first place.
  • To highlight many of the Tax Deductions, Credits and Benefits that are available to people with disabilities and their families.

To get your copy, click here to read the Canadian Disability Tax Tips for 2009 Tax Year in your browser, or right-click to download it.

And as Graeme reminds us... "It is not to be taken as Accounting or Taxation advice but rather, as a resource to provide a starting point for your journey through the maze that is Income Tax Preparation and Planning for people with a disability and their families."

Did You Know...

There are a few new additions to the financial assistance page.

Two in particular stand out - both for Ontarians with cerebral palsy.

The first provides details on funding for disability equipment such as communication boards, custom mounting equipment and more.

The second source of financial assistance is quite timely if you're looking at signing up for special needs camps. There is now financial assistance for camps and vacations. It may make the difference between being able to attend camp or not, so please be sure to check it out if you qualify.

Check the list of financial assistance programs compiled so far, and be sure to add others that you know about too!
