This bill limits the amount a Disability Tax Credit service provider can charge for assistance with Disability Tax Credit eligibility, applications, forms, or reassessments. Despite the intention of protecting disabled Canadians from overpaying for these services, Bill C-462 will limit the ability of organizations to provide adequate support for clients.
The Bill passed and received royal ascent in 2014. Two years later, the CRA began revising and drafting new regulations. Now, in 2017, the resulting, punitive regulations may have negative consequences for 3.8 million Canadians living with disabilities.
Thankfully, Ministry of Revenue staff have committed to consulting with the ACDBP to ensure fair regulations.
"The regulations under Bill C-462 must ensure that these legitimate businesses remain financially viable under this model."
The Association’s members have consistent dialogue with Canada's Parliament. We hope to expand our resources and reach through revision of Bill C-462, which will facilitate more funding and support for Canada's disabled community.
