If You Are Denied The Disability Tax Credit…
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 not true.
After Being Denied the Disability Tax Credit
You have options. The first is to reapply. Recognize that disabilities change with time. A person becomes eligible for this tax credit when he or she is unable to perform certain daily living activities or when these tasks take an extensive amount of time to perform. If you have lost certain functions over the years, you may now be eligible for the Disability Tax Credit.
Reapply for the Disability Tax Credit
Sometimes, a person is denied the Disability Tax Credit because he or she did not supply enough information on initial application forms. 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. Provide thorough information and have your medical practitioner do the same.
Appeal a Denied Disability Tax Credit
After reapplying, if the Disability Tax Credit Certificate comes back rejected again, it is possible to appeal the Canada Revenue Agency’s (CRA) decision. Once the appeal is made, the CRA will assign you an appeals officer. (It can take up to nine months for you to receive an officer.) This officer will review your file and make a decision about your case.
Before filing an appeal, you may choose to ask benefit specialists for help. However, rather than waiting for your Disability Tax Credit application to be denied multiple times, be proactive; ask benefit specialists from the National Benefit Authority (NBA) for help before you apply.
