The disability support deductions you want to claim must:
- Have allowed you to work, carry on a business, do research for which you received a grant, or attend school
- Not be included in medical expenses that you claimed on your, or someone else’s return
You can deduct some of your expenses without a prescription, like sign-language interpretation or real-time captioning services in Canada. For others, you might need a prescription or certification from your doctor, like equipment you can use if you’re visually impaired. Visit the Revenu Québec website for a list of these expenses.
If you want to claim the federal disability supports deduction as well, complete the T929: Disability Supports Deduction form.
