Your needs come first! We have implemented a worry-free process where we don’t get paid until you do and we are not satisfied until you are. Keeping our clients informed and educated is a part of our mandate at First Support Professionals.
Did you know that many Canadians who may qualify for the Disability Tax Credit are unaware that the program even exists? They often feel that their disability is not severe enough to qualify. So if you are wondering whether you or a family member qualifies, give us a call today and learn your options.
How do I benefit as a family member?
We understand your needs as well. As a taxpayer who has supported a disabled family member, you are entitled to the benefits involving the Disability Tax Credit. As per CRA, if your disabled family member is entitled to the Disability Tax Credit, the money can be transferred to you, because you have supported him or her on a regular basis towards the basic necessities of life such food, shelter, and clothing. We can help you claim all or part of the disability amount on behalf of your disabled family member, if you are related either by blood or marriage. Ideally you would have also paid income tax.
