Home Improvement Projects That Offer a Tax Rebate

Home improvement is something that always gets me excited. Making a few changes even as small as moving the furniture around always tend to alleviate my mood. Bigger changes like replacing the roof or windows, getting a new fence around the garden, etc. are also equally exciting. An added bonus is when some home improvement projects offer a tax rebate. If you are looking to do some minor renovating in your home here are a few projects that will offer a tax rebate.

Home Improvement for Medical Reasons

The United States government offers an income tax deduction if you are undertaking a home improvement project for medical reasons.

 Wheelchair Accessibility – For instance, if you need to make your home wheelchair accessible because someone in your family is going to be in a wheelchair for a prolonged period of time, you can add the cost of building and putting in ramps wherever necessary as tax deductable.

Air Filtration System – If someone in your family has certain respiratory conditions and/or breathing problems, you may be advised by a doctor to install a better air filtration system in your home. Proper centralized air conditioning is necessary for the health of that person.

Any project that is undertaken for medical reasons should have a certified note by a doctor stating the reasons for those home improvements in order to be eligible for a tax rebate.

 Home Energy Efficiency Improvement

If you are planning to redo your home to make it more energy efficient, you are in luck. Replacing your roofing system or your windows to make your home more energy efficient on the whole will allow you to deduct those expenses from your taxes.

 Making your house more energy efficient will save you a lot of money in the long run by reducing your over all heating and cooling bills. The air inside your home will be regulated more efficiently and the temperature will be retained for longer as the energy efficient windows will allow for little or no interference from the outside.

Champion Windows and Doors provide a whole replacement with Energy efficient windows, along with roofing systems and other home improvement items.
