Energy-Efficient Home Renovations

Medical Care Home Improvements

Many seniors renovate their home so that they can age in place. Many of these home renovations can be tax deductible. The stipulation is that its main purpose has to be to care for you, your spouse, or a dependent. Some of these home improvement projects include installing a wheelchair ramp, widening your home’s hallways and door to accommodate a wheelchair, and installing bars in the bathroom, such as in your shower or near your toilet.

Home Office Renovations

The caveat here is that you have to be self-employed or run your business out of your own home to receive tax deduction for home office renovations. With the plethora of workers now working from home due to COVID-19, you may see this altered in the tax laws in the future.
