Rachel Blaney, MP
NDP MP Rachel Blaney is holding informational seminars on the Canada Revenue Agency’s disability tax credit (DTC). Every year, many eligible Canadians neglect to apply for the DTC, which can offer substantial rebates to people who face difficulties in their daily activities.

‟The disability tax credit can reduce someone’s income tax bill by more than $1300 per year,” said Blaney. ‟If you haven’t claimed it in the past, you can request a retroactive adjustment as far back as 10 years. This can mean a significant return for some.”

‟If you want to know whether you or someone close to you is eligible, you should really attend one of the upcoming seminars.”
