An Income Tax Workshop for Family Caregivers

Medical Expenses and Attendant Care Tax Credits – Lucrative and Misunderstood.

Perhaps the best known – and least understood – claim you can make on your income taxes is Medical Expenses and the various related tax credits that surround medical issues. But every year, thousands of Canadian Taxpayers lose out simply because legitimate claims are not made.

To address this confusion, this presentation will cover all medically-related tax credits, focusing on the Disability Tax Credit, Attendant and Caregiver Claims, as well as the Healthy Homes Tax Credit.

Please join us on February 24, 2016 as Alan Rowell, MFA, DFA-Tax Services Specialist from The Accounting Place, breaks down this confusing and misunderstood section of the Income Tax Act, to help ensure that caregivers, seniors and all taxpayers are claiming all the credits they are entitled to.

WHEN: Wednesday February 24, 2016,  7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

WHERE: The Catholic Diocese in The Chancery building, 700 King Street West, Hamilton

DIRECTIONS: While on King St. W., cross Dundurn St. • Take 1st Right onto Breadalbane, • Take immediate 1st Left into the parking lot.


REGISTRATION INFORMATION: Registration is required as materials will be distributed. Contact Miriam Cahn, Social Worker, VON Hamilton, 905-523-1055 ext. 408 or at by e-mail at

With notice by February 1st, In-Home Respite Care (a PSW comes to your home) can be arranged for your family member @ $6/hour to enable you to attend the program. First come first served as available hours are limited. Please call Miriam for details (see above).
