In the case of persons who have a disability and reside in a long-term care centre ("CHSLD"), they must make a choice because the program will not recognize the disability amount if you also claim the fees for a residential and long-term care centre.


Note that the fees paid for a nursing home must be included in the "Medical expenses" section. To do this, please follow these steps:


1- In the "QuikClik Navigator" located on the left of the screen, select the "Medical and disability". On the page to the right, choose "Medical expenses".


2- On the new page generated, go to the third section "Specified medical expenses (not claimed elsewhere)" and enter the amount that was paid for the "Fees for a residential and long-term centre".


Note: Do not include the costs of accommodation for long-term care in the first section such as those relating to drugs bought on prescription, dental and other costs of the same type.


If fees paid for a nursing home are less than the disability amount on line 316 of Schedule 1 of the federal return and line 376 of the Quebec return, it would be preferable not to claim the fees paid for a nursing home. However, the choice is yours.


If you accidentally enter the cost of a nursing home in the wrong place, the disability amount will be claimed and the CRA and Revenu Québec could review your case and make a revision of your file.
