Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Hello, I'm Robin. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now and typing up my reply. I'll post that in just a few moments.
Your country is listed as CANADA so I will only apply Canadian law. If you are asking about another country please advise.
You may be entitled to claim the GST/HST new housing rebate if you:
Generally, 90% or more of the interior of an existing house is the minimum that has to be removed or replaced to qualify as a substantial renovation (90% test). Remodeling your basement would not be enough.
If this remodel improved access for someone with a disability then you may be allowed to claim a credit.
If this home was used for rental you could claim as a capital expense.
The action would need to be under one of the above for you to claim any.
If you rate in a positive way (look for the STARS or SMILEY FACES) I am credited with responding. It adds nothing to your costs but it assists me.
