Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP) recipients may be eligible for the disability tax credit (DTC), registered disability savings plan (RDSP), and other benefits. Some extra considerations must be taken into account.  The disability tax credit is a non-refundable tax credit, which means it’s used to reduce federal/provincial income taxes paid.  As a result recipients of ODSP benefits need to explore their options for transferring their disability tax credits to supporting family members.

ODSP Provincial Benefits and the Disability Tax Credit.

The Disability Tax Credit and ODSP/AISH

Disability Tax Credits ODSPUpdated for 2024. One common misconception about the Disability Tax Credit (DTC) is that it holds no value for recipients of the Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP) or other provincial benefits such as Assured Income for the Severely Handicapped (AISH).

While the non-refundable tax credit portion of the Disability Tax Credit is often the focus, otherwise known as a disability tax credit refund, ODSP recipients typically don’t have any taxes payable, so they can’t directly benefit from this part of the credit. However, this doesn’t mean that individuals on ODSP cannot leverage the other benefits offered by the Disability Tax Credit.
