If you lived in a residential complex (such as a condominium) and paid fees during the year that included the cost of eligible services, for which you can claim the tax credit for home-support services for seniors, you can ask the building’s syndicate of co-owners to complete this form. This form reports the cost of eligible services that are included in the condominium fees you’ve paid during the year, including common expenses and contributions to a contingency fund, that can be used to claim the tax credit.
Anyone, who’s at least 70 years of age on December 31, can ask the syndicate of co-owners of his or her condominium to complete this form as long as:
- You own a unit in the condominium and
- The condominium fees include the cost of at least one home-support service such as housekeeping, rug cleaning, garbage removal, pool maintenance, and more.
Where can I claim this?
If you received a completed TPZ-1029.MD.5-V form from your building’s syndicate of co-owners, you can claim this tax credit on the Schedule J page.
