Owning a home is a part of the American Dream, but it does involve ongoing expenses to maintain the property. Some home remodeling is considered repair to the existing structure, which does not provide the homeowner with tax deductions. However, other home remodeling improves the property, which does provide some tax incentives for the homeowner.

In addition, when a health issue necessitates special enhancements to a home, such as a stair lift, elevator, ramp, or air conditioning, it’s possible to have these medical expenses deducted from annual income taxes. State and federal government agencies often seek to encourage homeowners to make energy-enhancing renovations such as adding insulation or installing energy-efficient appliances. Homeowners can receive tax deductions when they perform these improvements according to government specifications. Home plumbing companies can assist homeowners with questions about these programs.
