Disability Tax Credit Consultations

Posted on: November 10th, 2014

As you may be aware, the Disability Tax Credit Promoter’s Restriction Act (DTCPRA), which received Royal Assent on May 29, 2014, proposes to limit the fees that a promoter may charge to complete a Disability Tax Credit (DTC) request.

Starting this month, the CRA will begin in-person and online consultations seeking the views of Canadians with disabilities and their supporting persons, promoters, tax professionals, qualified practitioners and members from the general public. This feedback will help the CRA establish regulations setting the maximum fees allowable under the Act, as well as to identify individuals who may be exempt from the Act’s reporting requirements. The CRA is also looking for suggestions on how to simplify the DTC process and clarify the steps Canadians need to take to apply for the credit.

Your participation and feedback are important to the CRA and will be essential in helping protect people with disabilities from paying excessive fees for assistance with a DTC request as well as improve the DTC process.

Find out more information and how to participate here.
