It is very worthwhile to make the effort and there is a place to go where you can get definitive answers specific to your situation – usually at no cost. There are six tax credits that should be looked at to maximize results. The entire family situation should be considered because tax credits can often be transferred between family members based on the eligibility of the person they are caring for to qualify for a disability tax credit. Other variables are age, income levels, marital status, other family relationships, transfer options, residency and financial support paid or received.
