How do I claim the Canada Caregiver Credit (CCC)?

If you support a spouse, common-law partner or dependant with a physical and/or mental impairment, then the Canada Caregiver Credit (CCC) may be available to you. This non-refundable tax credit is designed to help caregivers with the costs and expenses of providing care to loved ones.

To see if you qualify for the CCC, and to determine the amounts you may be eligible to claim, visit the CRA website. You will need a copy of this information on-hand when preparing your return in TurboTax.
