Single mother’s by choice and LGBTQ parents, have you claimed the tax credit for your fertility treatments?
The Canadian government has just expanded its fertility tax credit to include people who don’t have an infertility diagnosis. That means single mothers by choice and LGBTQ parents who did fertility treatments in the last 10 years can apply for a credit. So whether you are single or coupled, in any permutation of LGBTQ, fertile or with a infertility diagnosis; it's time you had a chat with your accountant about what this could mean for you at tax time.
This is a wonderful step towards equally supporting all Canadians wanting to, or who have started a family, using fertility treatments like IVF.
