CANADA REVENUE AGENCY (CRA) – KINESIOLOGISTS LISTED AS AUTHORIZED MEDICAL PRACTITIONERS FOR THE PURPOSES OF CLAIMING MEDICAL EXPENSES:
Kinesiologists in Ontario have been added to the list of “Authorized Medical Practitioners by province or territory for the purposes of claiming medical expenses” on the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) website at this link: http://www.cra-arc.gc.ca/tx/ndvdls/tpcs/ncm-tx/rtrn/cmpltng/ddctns/lns300-350/330/ampp-eng.html
Persons receiving services of a Registered Kinesiologist in Ontario can now claim it as an eligible medical expense paid in 12-month period ending in 2013 and not claimed by you or anyone else.
Patients/clients can only claim the part of an expense for which they have not been or will not be reimbursed. However, they can claim the full expense if the reimbursement is included in their income, such as a benefit shown on a T4 slip, and they did not deduct the reimbursement anywhere else on their income tax and benefit return.
For more information on the Medical Expense Tax Credit see: http://www.cra-arc.gc.ca/tx/tchncl/ncmtx/fls/s1/f1/s1-f1-c1-eng.html#p1.20
Another step in the continuing recognition of the profession, and kinesiologists.
