Action area: Home renovation
Status: Available
Dollar value: A maximum tax credit of $1,350 can be claimed when filing your
2009 tax return (receipts before Feb 10, 2010).
Calculation: Total expenditure - $1000 (base amount) * 15% =
Example 1: $10,000 - $1000 * 15% = $1350

  The Home Renovation Tax Credit (HRTC) will apply to eligible home renovation expenditures for work performed, or goods acquired, after January 27, 2009, and before February 1, 2010, pursuant to agreements entered into after January 27, 2009.

The HRTC can be claimed for renovations and enduring alterations to a dwelling, or the land on which it sits. The 15-per-cent credit may be claimed on the portion of eligible expenditures exceeding $1,000, but not more than $10,000, meaning that the maximum tax credit that can be received is $1,350.
