Claiming the Tax Credit for Home-Support Services for Seniors
To receive the tax credit for home-support services for seniors you must either:
- claim the tax credit in your income tax return (complete Schedule J); or
- apply for advance payments of the tax credit by filing an application form or by using the Apply for Advance Payments of the Tax Credit for Home-Support Services for Seniors online service.
The amount of tax credit to which you are entitled is the same either way.
If you have a spouse on December 31 (This link will open a new window) and you are both entitled to the tax credit, only one of you can claim it for your couple.
