Where do i find tools to change line 31800?

Thank you for choosing TurboTax.

Disability Amount Transferred from a Dependant – Line 31800: As per CRA: If have a dependant who is able to claim the Disability Tax Credit (DTC) and does not need to claim all or part of that amount on their tax return. you may be able to claim all or part of their disability amount on your tax return.

 

Applying for the Disability Tax Credit:

  • You may claim the disability tax credit for yourself, a child, or your spouse or common-law partner.
  • To apply, either the person with the disability or a legal representative must fill out the T2201 tax form. For example, if you are applying for the DTC on behalf of your child, you may act as the legal representative and fill out Part A of the form.
  • A medical practitioner is required to fill out Part B of the form. Depending on the type of impairment, a medical doctor, optometrist, audiologist, occupational therapist, psychologist, or speech-language pathologist may complete this portion.
  • When the form is completed, mail it to your nearest tax center.

To claim the disability tax credit, you must first have an approved DTC application (form T2201) on file with the CRA, completed by both the person claiming the credit and a medical professional. If you’re transferring the credit from your dependant, Section 4 of the form must also be signed by the person with the disability.
