Financial Assistance - Under the Income Tax Act

Government of Canada - Revenue Canada Agency

Under the Income Tax Act, 20(1) (qq) and 20(1) (rr), the Federal government allows businesses/commercial building owners to deduct the amount they paid during the taxation year to make renovations or alterations to a building that enables individuals who have a mobility impairment gain access to the building or to be mobile within it.

Line 9270 Other expenses

There are expenses you can incur to earn income, other than those listed on Form T2125. Enter, on this line, the total of other expenses you incurred to earn income, as long as you did not include them on a previous line. You do not have to list these expenses on the form.

Disability-related Modifications

You can deduct outlays and expenses you incur for eligible disability-related modifications made to a building in the year you paid them, instead of having to add them to the capital cost of your building. Eligible disability-related modifications include changes you make to accommodate wheelchairs, such as:
  • installing hand-activated power door openers
  • installing interior and exterior ramps
  • modifying a bathroom, elevator, or doorway.
You can also deduct expenses paid to install or get the following disability-related devices and equipment:
  • elevator car-position indicators (such as braille panels and audio indicators)
  • visual fire-alarm indicators.
