Convention: 2017

WHEREAS the only way for any taxpayer to qualify for the Refundable Medical Expense Supplement is by having either Employment Income, “other” Employment Income, Business Income, Professional Income, Commission Income, Farming Income, and Fishing Income, and

WHEREAS many taxpayers, i.e., senior citizens and low-income individuals, have many deductible medical expenses that unfortunately they cannot claim due to the limitation of applicable income categories,

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the National Pensioners Federation urge the Canada Revenue Agency to rectify the injustices that taxpayers face regarding their inability to claim significant medical expenses because they may not have income in a specific category.
