Common Reasons Revenue Canada will deny your claim for the disability tax credit
If Revenue Canada denies your claim for the disability tax credit, it will likely be for one of the following reasons:
- they don’t believe your restrictions are severe enough
- they agree your disability is severe, but they it affects you less than 90% of the time
- they don’t believe your disability will be prolonged

Appealing a Disability Tax Credit Denial
You have the right to appeal a denial of the disability tax credit. Your first appeal is directly with Revenue Canada. It is called filing an objection. You have to file an objection form along with any new supporting documents. You can file all these documents online through the Revenue Canada website.
If Revenue Canada denies your objection, then you can appeal that decision to the Tax Court of Canada. For most cases involving $25,000 or less, you should file your appeal using the Tax Court of Canada’s Informal Procedure. This procedure is less technical (than regular court procedure), but the rules of evidence still apply. Once you file your appeal, the Court will set a time for your hearing. They won’t do this immediately, but you may not get a lot of advance notice.
It is critical that you file all documents well in advance of your hearing. We strongly urge you to get legal advice before you appeal to the Disability Tax Court. We can review your rights and options with our Free Case Review. Our disability tax credit lawyers may be able to represent you on a contingency fee basis. You would only pay us if we win.
