Home Renovation and Home Accessibility Tax Credits - Federal and Provincial
Home renovation tax credits allow homeowners a tax credit for eligible renovation costs. Some of these credits are non-refundable, so the tax credit can only be used to reduce taxes owing in the current taxation year. When a tax credit is refundable, if the amount exceeds the tax otherwise payable in the year, a refund will be issued.
