DTC claim

So I have a client and her common-law spouse has filed for the DTC and on his my account he has been accepted with no expiry date, he is a diabetic. So the spouse on her my account says she can claim the DTC for her spouse? Why would she claim it if he can claim it? He is not dependant on her, She said maybe sometimes she might have to help with him but he can do his own insulin. I think I am having a brain fog year. :grinning:

Thank you for your help

The spouse must use it first until the taxes are zero. Only the residual balance can be transferred to the spouse.

Thank you that makes total sense, Sometime people argue with me and I second guess myself.

thanks for the clarification

She may be able to claim the Caregiver Amount
