Home accessibility expenses

If you renovated your home in order to make it more accessible, you might be able to claim the Home accessibility expenses. Under this tax credit, the maximum you can claim is $10,000 of your eligible expenses.

Depending on your situation, you can claim this credit as either a qualifying individual or an eligible individual; while this distinction doesn’t change the credit amount you’re entitled to, each has its own eligibility criteria. For more information, refer to the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) website.

Note: Both you and your spouse or common-law partner can claim a portion of the tax credit on your respective returns as long as the combined amount doesn’t exceed the maximum credit limit ($10,000). If you do decide to split the credit amount, you’ll need to indicate how much of the expenses the other person is claiming on their tax return (line 398 on their Schedule 1).
