Table for Calculating Monthly Expenses on an Individual Basis – Tax Credit for Home-Support Services for Seniors

Use the table below to calculate monthly expenses based on rent on an individual basis if you were in any of the following situations:

  • You lived by yourself or were housing someone who was not your spouse.
  • You lived only with your spouse and only one of you was 70 or older.
  • You lived with one or more co-tenants and none of them was your spouse.

The total amount determined for all services rendered must not exceed 65% of the total monthly rent, or 75% of the total monthly rent for a person considered to be dependent senior.

If you shared your dwelling with one or more co-tenants and none of them was your spouse, divide the monthly rent by the number of people living in the dwelling  to determine your share of the rent.

If you lived with your spouse and at least one other co-tenant, contact us to find out what special rules apply.
