Thursday, February 13, 2020
12:00 PM ET

Making sure you’ve correctly claimed all eligible deductions at tax time can be a confusing subject (even for tax experts!), and especially so for people who are on dialysis or have had a kidney transplant. Whether you work or not, there are various tax credits and deductions for which you may be eligible. The CRA may make changes to how these tax credits are claimed, and details can change slightly from year to year. Tanya Ace from Liberty Tax will share some general tax tips on what you can claim if you have an income, or if you don’t, and explain how the medical expense tax credit and the disability tax credit are applied.
