Did you know that Canada Revenue Agency has a home accessibility tax credit available where you or a supporting person may be eligible to claim up to $10,000 in qualifying renovations?
If you are an eligible or qualifying individual which is typically an individual 65 years of age or older that is eligible for the disability tax credit or credits that support care giving or inform, dependents, you may be eligible to deduct home renovation costs on your eligible dwelling. An eligible dwelling generally refers to a housing unit owned by an eligible or qualifying individuals.
CRA defines a qualifying renovation as "a renovation or alteration that is of an enduring nature and is integral to the eligible dwelling (including the land that forms part of the eligible dwelling). The renovation must: allow the qualifying individual to gain access to, or to be mobile or functional within, the dwelling; or reduce the risk of harm to the qualifying individual within the dwelling or in gaining access to the dwelling. An item you buy that will not become a permanent part of your dwelling is generally not eligible."
This may mean that your walk-in bathtub renovation may be eligible for the program. To see if you are eligible, please visit their website.
