Disability Tax Credit for Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)


Did you know that over the past ten years the number of Canadians with a diagnosed bowel disorder has doubled?  Canada has one of the highest rates of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) in the world, with 5 million Canadians currently suffering from it and 120,000 Canadians getting diagnosed with it every year.

Those who have IBS often experience abdominal pain, bloating and an irregular bowel pattern alternating between constipation and diarrhea.  For some, the symptoms of IBS can be managed through life-style changes, such as dietary restrictions.  For those who are unable to manage their symptoms and experience the affects of IBS on a regular basis, they may qualify for the Disability Tax Credit.

Having IBS often results in incidental but necessary expenses, such as medications, and more.  The Canadian government acknowledges that extra expenses are incurred by individuals who have IBS and as a result provides financial assistant in the form of the Disability Tax Credit.

Getting approved for the Disability Tax Credit could entitle you to a significant disability refund. Most of our clients receive anywhere from $1,600 to $30,000.

Disability Tax Service will assess your eligibility for the Disability Tax Credit and other benefits for free and inform you of the amount of your disability refund.

To begin the process, fill out our free assessment form, or give us a call at 1-866-733-7370.
