Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is a common disorder that attacks the large intestine. IBS is a chronic condition that needs to be managed long term. As of right now there is no cure for those who suffer from IBS but there are some medications for those to help make the disorder more tolerable.
Those who suffer from IBS experience cramping while using the washroom, pain, bloating, gas, constipation, and diarrhea. These individuals frequent the washroom more often the average person due to the feeling of urgency.
Typically if someone is suffering from IBS, they may qualify for the Disability Tax Credit under "Elimination". The general requirement for qualifying under Elimination would be that:
- You are affected at least 90% of the time
- You require an inordinate amount of time (3x longer than average person) to manage this function of daily living.
If you are going to the bathroom 3x more frequently than the average person, or have to spend longer in the bathroom due to pain and cramping, you may qualify for the Disability Tax Credit.
