MP helps with your taxes

NDP MP Rachel Blaney is holding seminars around the region on the disability tax credit (DTC) this week, including Friday, in Campbell River.

Every year, many eligible Canadians neglect to apply for the DTC, which offers substantial assistance to people who face difficulties in their daily activities, according to a press release from Blaney.

The disability tax credit can amount to $1,380 per year per person,” she said in the release. You can request an adjustment and claim it retroactively as far back as 10 years.”

DTC eligibility is based on the level of difficulty you face in your daily activities: walking, eating, seeing, hearing or maintaining bowel or bladder functions.

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

The Campbell River seminar will take place  this Friday, March 18 at 2 p.m. at the Campbell River Community Centre.

Anyone wishing to participate but unable to due to accessibility issues is urged to contact Blaney’s office in advance at 1-800-667-8404.
