Home Renovation Tax Credit Now Available in Quebec

April 29th, 2014 by Cathy Rust Leave a reply »

On April 24th, 2014, the newly elected provincial Liberal government announced a LogiRenov Home Renovation Tax Credit, similar to the one the Federal government offered back in 2009.

Specifically the tax credit works like this (from the website):

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 per eligible dwelling. [source]

The type of work that is permitted is pretty broad, from fixing up a bathroom to repairing or replacing roofing shingles. However, the work must be completed by a registered contractor and you must have a receipt for the work done.

To find out what type of work qualifies, visit the Revenu Quebec website.

Another point to remember is that EcoRenov tax credit that was introduced in November, 2013 is still in effect and will work in conjunction with this one.

The Home Renovation Tax Credit is only in effect for the tax years of 2014 and 2015, so if you want to take advantage of it, start organizing those projects now.

For more information, visit the Revenu Quebec website.
