Please sign this petition to ensure that the 500,000 eligible Canadians who are still not receiving their Disability tax credit aren't abandoned.

FACT: 60% of eligible Canadians aren't benefiting from the Disability Tax Credit. (University of Calgary, School of Public Policy 2018)

FACT: Disability Benefit Professionals:

  • Have assisted over 100,000 Canadians apply for the Disability Tax Credit.
  • Do not charge upfront fees.
  • Are only paid when successful.
  • Abide by a professional code of conduct.
  • Can work for up to 3 years to get a claim approved.
  • Invest significant money in awareness.
  • Coordinate with medical practitioners in completing the application.
  • Analyze up to 10 years of tax history to maximize the benefit.
  • Coordinate with family members to maximize the credit by utilizing sponsorship and transfer capacities.
  • Coordinate with the medical practitioner 4-12 weeks post-filing to complete CRA follow up documentation.
  • File objections when CRA unfairly denies the claim.
  • Attend at the Tax Court of Canada when CRA unfairly denies the objection.

FACT: CRA.......

  • Provided incorrect information up to 84% of the time on certain questions (Auditor General)
  • Does not answer 2/3 of callers. (Auditor General)
  • Proposes regulations that go against Number 15 of its own Taxpayer Bill of Rights: You have the right to be represented by a person of your choice.
  • In 2017 suddenly started to decline all Diabetes claims without explanation.
  • Did not give the Association of Canadian Disability Benefit professionals (ACDBP) a seat on its Disability Advisory Committee.
  • Received an "F" on handling the Disability Tax credit process. (Senate report 2018)

Without professionals, Canadians will be forced to either:

  • Risk paying upfront fees, regardless of results.
  • Fend for themselves against CRA.

With professionals Canadians are allowed to choose to either:

  • Go through the Disability Tax Credit process independently.
  • Have representation from their accountant, lawyer, financial advisor or Disability Benefit Professional.

Please sign this petition to ensure that The 500,000 eligible Canadians who are still not receiving their Disability tax credit aren't abandoned.
