A Myth about the Denied Disability Tax Credit Certificate

September 03, 2013

Have you been denied the Disability Tax Credit in the past? How did you handle this – did you file an appeal, reapply, or accept the decision?


If your application was denied, it is possible the Canada Revenue Agency made a mistake. Unfortunately, many people believe there is no chance of qualifying if an application was first denied. This is a myth.

After Receiving Disability Tax Credit Certificate Denial

There are options. The first is to reapply. Recognize that disabilities change with time. A person becomes eligible for this benefit program when he or she is unable to perform certain daily living tasks or when these tasks take an extended amount of time to perform. If you have lost certain functions over the years, you may now be eligible for the Disability Tax Credit.

Be Honest and Detailed on T2201 Form

Sometimes, a person is denied the Disability Tax Credit when more information is required. This is an oversight in the system. Unfortunately, it is up to the applicant to correct the problem. Reapply and be sure to fill out the T2201 form properly. This means you provide thorough information and be sure the medical practitioner does the same.

Filing an Appeal

After reapplying, if the Disability Tax Credit Certificate comes back rejected again, contact a professional service provider. The National Benefit Authority can help you appeal the Canada Revenue Agency’s (CRA) decision.

Using the NBA to file an appeal is advised. Once the appeal is made, the CRA will assign you an appeals officer. It could take up to 9 months for you to receive an officer. This officer will review your file and make a decision about your case. This process can go smoothly with the aid of professionals. The NBA can help you put your documents in order and prepare your response to the appeals officer.

The process of applying for the Disability Tax Credit can be laborious. Many people find it time consuming and confusing. A lot of paperwork and follow up correspondence are required. The best way to approach applying for the Disability Tax Credit is to fill out the T2201 form right the first time.

Throughout all the steps of the application process, professional benefit specialists at the National Benefit Authority are able to help. If you are just beginning to investigate the Disability Tax Credit, contact the NBA for a free consultation. If you wish to appeal a denied application, the guidance of experienced professionals can be invaluable.
