Unique Tax Credit
The Province of Manitoba offers a unique tax credit for ‘caregivers’ of someone who needs assistance in order to remain in their own home. Most of our clients were unaware of the deduction and that you could go back and claim the credit from 2009 onwards.
If you look after one of your parents or a friend/neighbor who suffers from health issues such that they need help with day-to-day living, then you may be eligible for this credit.
This year the credit is currently worth a maximum of $1,400 payable on your tax return.
