What is an ITR-DD?

This is a "Confirmation of Diagnosis of Disability" form for an individual taxpayer. A person who has a disability, or whose spouse or child has a disability, needs to have their condition confirmed by a registered medical professional. This is done by way of the ITR-DD form which must be completed by both the individual and the medical practitioner.  Once the taxpayer has the ITR-DD, they can benefit from an additional medical expenses credit when they submit their ITR12. The ITR-DD needs to be completed every five years for taxpayers (including their spouse or child) with a permanent disability and one year for taxpayers with a temporary disability.
