Hello. My name is Phyllis. I would like to share with you how TaxWise became such an important part of my life.
I have a form of cerebral palsy that greatly affects my balance. Taking public transit to work became virtually impossible for me. By 2004, I was taking taxis at least three times a week to get to my job. That became a very expensive means of transportation, especially on my salary.
I contacted different agencies, trying to acquire some assistance, only to be told that because I did not use a device such as a walker or a cane, I was not eligible for any means of transportation that assists the physically disabled. I was feeling very frustrated, and, by this time, angry. The taxi costs were putting a strain on my marriage. The Cerebral Palsy Association was my last hope. They told me about TaxWise. I contacted them immediately, and spoke to Christine MacLean. She was wonderful.
TaxWise submitted the necessary documents to the government. My request for a Disability Tax Credit was granted. By May 24, 2006, I had received a total of $9,460.32. TaxWise had acquired a disability credit for me from 1995-2004 inclusively, as well as my 2005 Disability Tax Credit.
TaxWise changed my life. I went from owing a substantial amount on every tax return, to receiving a DTC each year. It is so reassuring to know that once tax time is upon us, my return is done by caring professionals who have my welfare and best interests at heart. Thank-you to everyone at TaxWise.
With much appreciation,
We had the Disability Tax Credit, but did not realise that there was so much more that we qualified for! When our son was thirteen someone mentioned to us that we should apply for a disability tax credit. We completed all the paperwork and sent it in to the government with an expectation that our request would be approved.– Barbara & Harvey Bloomfield
I am a mother now to a teenage son who has a behavioral disability [ADD]. My son’s history of diagnosis came about when he was three years old. We migrated to Canada when he was four and the school that he attended reverted to an institution for further evaluation of his behavior. As he grew up, we underwent several psychological assessments, special therapies, school IEP and community programs. On our part as parents, rearing him was quite a struggle as my son in major aspects and appearance is normal but the behavioral and mental maturity is behind.– Mrs. Maria Griselda
