Updates of Form T2201 Federal Disability Tax Credit Certificate: New Authority for Nurse Practitioners
Tuesday, October 24, 12-1 p.m. ET

Register today!

In its 2017 budget the federal government added nurse practitioners (NPs) to the list of medical practitioners who can certify eligibility for the disability tax credit (DTC). NPs can now certify eligibility for all types of impairments within their scope of practice.
In this DTC informational webinar you will learn:

  • how patients can apply (a three-minute video)
  • specific definitions and eligibility criteria
  • which practitioners can certify each DTC category
  • the role of medical practitioners
  • where to find additional resources

Throughout the webinar, you’ll be able to ask questions on any aspect of the DTC.
We hope the information will help you inform your patients, both about the credit and about whether they might apply.
