Credit for tax-free products gluten-end

In Canada, people diagnosed with celiac disease, also known as gluten intolerance, may request to include the incremental cost of alternative foods called gluten as medical expenses.

For the incremental cost, it is simply to avoid the price of gluten-free, that of a similar product with gluten.

However, you must justify the amount you indicated on your tax reports. Always keep important information such as:

• A letter from your doctor stating that you suffer from celiac disease and you need a gluten free diet.
• Receipts for all gluten-free products that you ask for the cost differential.
• A summary of the products purchased vs. a similar product with gluten, including the price of both.
Only the portion of gluten-free products consumed by the person with Celiac disease must be sought.

Certain conditions may apply.
