Note: Before tax year 2019, line 45200 was line 452.
Income Tax Act s. 122.51(1)
The Federal refundable medical expense supplement is available to low income individuals who have paid medical expenses, or disability supports expenses. To be eligible for this supplement, the individual must:
For 2021, the maximum supplement is the lesser of $1,285, or 25% of both medical expenses (line 33200, line 332 prior to 2019 of the federal tax return) and disability supports expenses (line 21500, line 215 prior to 2019). This is reduced by 5% of combined net income (line 23600, line 236 prior to 2019) (taxpayer & spouse) in excess of $28,446 in 2021. It is eliminated when combined net income reaches $54,146.
