ITR-DD

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

Validity of a completed and endorsed ITR-DD form:

If the disability is of a permanent nature and the disability remains moderate to severe:

  • Ten years where the disability has occurred for the first time on or after 01 March 2019.
  • Five years after the expiry date of the form, which was valid on 01 March 2019, where the disability had occurred for the first time before 01 March 2019.

If the disability is of a temporary nature:

  • One year from 01 March of each year of assessment, where the disability is not of a permanent nature.
