Renovating your home this summer?

A new refundable tax credit for households that renovate their home, expand it, adapt it to the special needs of a family member or convert it into an intergenerational house has been implemented on a temporary basis.

This new credit is intended for individuals who are homeowners and who hire a qualified contractor to carry out renovation work on their principal residence under a contract entered into after April 24, 2014, and before July 1, 2015.

The amount of the tax credit corresponds to 20% of the portion of an individual's eligible expenses that exceeds $3,000, up to a maximum tax credit of $2,500.
