income taxes here in Canada.
For those of us with health conditions, like myself with Type 1 diabetes, it can be a challenge to figure out what you can claim as " eligible medical expense " ( Lines 330 and 331 ).
Well, help is on the way thanks to Christina from Hamilton who reads my #dblogs from time to time - and had sent me a link from Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) to pass on to you. It shows what Canadians can claim on our returns if you or your spouse/common-law partner paid for "eligible medical expenses" during the 12-month period ending in 2015 (or any that you did not claim in 2014). Whoo! Whoo!
The info is all pretty well straight forward, and you might even come across a medical expense that you didn't realise you could claim (I saw a few that I didn't know about). Click on the following link to find out more - http://www.cra-arc.gc.ca/medical/
And if you've not applied for the Disability Tax Credit (I've written about it at Diabetes1.org in the past) - then it's time to get cracking! When I applied for it, I was granted a total of 15 years. You can find more information about how to proceed with filling out the form through the great website run by Barb Wagstaff at Diabetes Advocacy.
