Applying for the Disability Tax Credit – Additional Information Request
After applying for the Disability Tax Credit, it is possible to be notified that you have neither been denied nor accepted. In some cases, you may be asked to submit additional information. This request is to confirm how your disability restricts daily activities or about the life sustaining therapies you require.
The Canadian Revenue Agency can request additional information at any time. If you receive a request for additional information it is important to consult benefit specialists about the next steps to take. Examples of the further details you may need to supply include:
– More information about your impairment or disability
– How your disability or impairment impacts daily living
– An explanation of your life sustaining therapy
This request will come from the National Revenue agency in written form. The notification may be sent to the person with the disability or the individual filing to receive a transferred portion of the credit. In addition, it may even be sent to the medical practitioner who filled out the T2201 form.
Do not fear this request. Embrace the opportunity to continue applying for the Disability Tax Credit. The Canada Revenue Agency wants to understand the full scope of your disability; more than the definition of your physical or mental impairment, it is necessary to supply details about how the disability affects your daily life.
A request for additional information is not a setback. It is not a denial and it is not grounds for you to give up. Instead, it is another chance to help the Canada Revenue Agency understand your needs.
