Disability Tax Credit in AlbertaThe Disability Tax Credit (DTC) in Alberta is a non-refundable tax credit provided by the federal government, with an additional provincial supplement available. In Alberta, the provincial supplement for the 2023 tax year amounts to $12,158. If you resided in Alberta on December 31st, 2023, and meet the eligibility requirements for the Disability Tax Credit, you are entitled to both the Federal Disability amount of $9,428 and the provincial supplement. These are the base amounts that you input into your income tax return.

The maximum amount you will receive after income tax calculations in Alberta for just the 2023 disability tax credit is $3,060. This benefit applies to one year of the Disability Tax Credit.

Keep in mind that you may be able to file for the DTC retroactively for ten calendar years, currently back to 2014. This can result in a substantial disability tax credit refund of up to $27,350.  This amount does not include other benefits you may be eligible to receive including the Child Disability Supplement, the Canada Caregiver Credit, the disability supplement to the Canada Workers Benefit, the Registered Disability Savings Plan (RDSP), and more.

To calculate how much you might be eligible to receive, indicate what year your medical condition began.
