July 15, 2013 at 11:58 AM

In a November 8, 2012 Tax Court of Canada case, CRA disallowed as a medical expense $14,883 of travel costs related to 101 round trips that Mr. Jordan made from Weyburn to Regina to assist his wife in recovering from an aneurysm.

Taxpayer wins!!

The Court allowed the deductions on the basis that they were incurred while his wife was receiving medical treatment and, therefore, should not be restricted to just the initial trip from Weyburn to Regina.
