In each of the 8 categories, on the bottom in BOLD you will see this Is your patient markedly restricted if this box is not checked YES you can write till the cows come home and you won't get the DTC. You need to be MARKED RESTRICTED in one of the 8 to receive the DTC. My first APP I was denied and I was told by CRA that I was not MARKED RESTRICTED; even though my write up was extensive and thorough. Second APP with same Doctor write up but with MARKED RESTRICTED checked YES and I was granted the DTC. FYI

Isn't it extremely difficult to get approved for DTC?

Is Anxiety, Depression, Tinnitus, and a Tendonitis (right shoulder) enough?

Many may not know that Nurse Practitioners can now certify applications for the disability tax credit.

Nurse practitioners can fill out and sign Form T2201, Disability Tax Credit Certificate.

Danny is correct, you need to send them a letter requesting they reassess your taxes to reflect the DTC, the notice of approval will show the years back your entitled for reassessment. You can contact the CRA for info regarding the address you are to send your request for reassessment, ask them if you can do it through My account or fax, I'm not certain but they may have added other means to send in your request. You need to do this as they will not reassess your taxes automatically.

Everyone differs in terms of tax situations, the average return for the DTC is between $800 to $1000 for each year being reassessed, again, these numbers could be below or above depending on the individuals tax situation.

It takes roughly anywhere between 1 to 3 Months before your refund is deposited into your bank account considering you have direct deposit, from the time they receive the request for reassessment. No instant refund from the reassessment.

Also usually your approved for five years, on your 4th year you need to re apply if you are still DTC disabled, The CRA will not contact you, you need to do this on your own.

It's also a good Idea for your doctor to keep a record (photo copy) of your initial application for future reference.

You will have to send  a letter or call (I can't remember) and have Revenue Canada, readjust your taxes going back to 2010 (adding your DTC, not sure but they may only go back seven years).
"That is the route I took when I was approved for the DTC".
I also deal with H&R block.
Hope this helps you.

Hi Artie,

I went back to my 2016 calendar to get the exact dates of my DTC approval and reassessment.  The approval for my DTC was 4 weeks and my tax reassessment was less than 3 months this was including mailing it. I was approved for DTC on September 28/ 2016. I sent out my request letter by certified mail on September 30/2016 and received my reassessment notice with my refund Cheque on December 12/2016. Just in time for xmas! Santa was very generous last year lol I hope this helps you out😄

Was that 3 months from the time you submitted the request...or 3 months from the time you got a letter saying your application had been approved?

Good to know.  I finally got around to sending mine in about 6 weeks ago.  Gotta get on that cppd now.  I hate all this paperwork.

So, hopefully yours is done the same way.  
Call them. Usually they are nice.

czerv,

They are changing procedures often, it's hard to keep up with the changes, it's been a little while since this particular DTC reassessment topic was deeply discussed, but that's what I like about the forum, members posting info so as to keep everyone up to date.
This is the first I hear of the reassessment being done automatically upon approval, so I guess the bottom line here would be for those who are approved for the DTC, contact the CRA to inquire if they are going to do the reassessment.

On another note, I have been reading on other sites just in the past couple of days where some who applied for the DTC have stated that their doctors filled out and sent out the forms to the CRA, the CRA after receiving the filled out forms sent a notice to the doctor requesting all records for the past 10 years on the applicant be sent to them before any decision is to be made. This for first time applicants, and renewal applicants.  

I know of one person who was approved recently for the DTC renewal, I asked him if this was the case, he said no.

So I'm unsure if this is a change in policy, or just specific circumstances.
