Tax Credit for Caregivers Supporting an Eligible Relative
You can claim a refundable tax credit for each eligible relative you supported and regularly and continuously assisted in carrying out a basic activity of daily life for free.
However, you cannot claim this tax credit if you or someone else is claiming one of the following tax credits in 2018 in respect of the same eligible relative:
- the tax credit for caregivers of a spouse;
- the tax credit for caregivers housing an eligible relative; or
- the tax credit for caregivers cohabiting with an eligible relative.
For more information, see point 2 in the instructions for line 462 in the guide to the income tax return (TP-1.G-V).
